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].
Enzymatic reaction of: cardenolide β-D-fucohydrolase
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.
The reaction is favored in the opposite direction.
In Pathways: cardenolide glucosides biosynthesis
T(opt): 37 °C [Kreis98]
pH(opt): 7.0 [Kreis98]
