Enzyme Commission Primary Name: glycosylceramidase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: phlorizin hydrolase, phloretin-glucosidase, glycosyl ceramide glycosylhydrolase, cerebrosidase, phloridzin β-glucosidase, lactase-phlorizin hydrolase, phloridzin glucosidase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Broad specificity [cf. EC 184.108.40.206 (glucosylceramidase) and EC 220.127.116.11 (galactosylceramidase)]. Also hydrolyses phlorizin to phloretin and glucose. The intestinal enzyme is a complex that also catalyses the reaction of EC 18.104.22.168 lactase.
