In Pathway: starch degradation IV, starch degradation III

Note that this reaction equation differs from the official Enzyme Commission reaction equation for this EC number, which can be found here .

Reaction Locations: extracellular space

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Mass balance status: Marked as unbalanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: cyclomaltodextrin glucanotransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: Bacillus macerans amylase, cyclodextrin glucanotransferase, α-cyclodextrin glucanotransferase, α-cyclodextrin glycosyltransferase, β-cyclodextrin glucanotransferase, β-cyclodextrin glycosyltransferase, γ-cyclodextrin glycosyltransferase, cyclodextrin glycosyltransferase, cyclomaltodextrin glucotransferase, cyclomaltodextrin glycosyltransferase, konchizaimu, α-1,4-glucan 4-glycosyltransferase, cyclizing, BMA, CGTase, neutral-cyclodextrin glycosyltransferase, 1,4-α-D-glucan 4-α-D-(1,4-α-D-glucano)-transferase (cyclizing)

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme cyclizes a part of a (1→4)-α-D-glucan chain by formation of a (1→4)-α-D-glucosidic bond.

Cyclodextrins (Schardinger dextrins) of various sizes (6,7,8, etc. glucose units) are formed reversibly from starch and similar substrates.

Will also disproportionate linear maltodextrins without cyclizing (cf. EC 2.4.1.25, 4-α-glucanotransferase).
