MetaCyc Enzyme: cardenolide β-D-fucohydrolase

Synonyms: cardenolide β-D-fucohydrolase

Species: Digitalis lanata

An enzyme with beta-D-fucohydrolase activity was detected and partially purified from young leaves of Digitalis lanata. This enzymes catalyzes the cleavage of D-fucose from digiproside to form digitoxigenin [Kreis98].
