The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Mass balance status: Undetermined; a substrate lacks a chemical formula
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: limit dextrinase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: R-enzyme, amylopectin-1,6-glucosidase, dextrin α-1,6-glucanohydrolase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme catalyzes hydrolysis of (1->6)-α-D-glucosidic linkages in α- and β-limit dextrins of amylopectin and glycogen, and in amylopectin and pullulan.
Plant enzymes with little or no action on glycogen.
Action on amylopectin is incomplete, but action on α-limit dextrins is complete.
Maltose is the smallest sugar it can release from an α-(1->6)-linkage.
