MetaCyc Reaction: 3.2.1.1

Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion Type Simple Reactions Chemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By Substrate Small-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: 3.2.1.1

Enzymes and Genes:
α-amylase Inferred from experiment : AMY2 ( Hordeum vulgare )
α-amylase Inferred from experiment : AMY1 ( Hordeum vulgare )

In Pathway: starch degradation I

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: α-amylase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: glycogenase, α amylase, α-amylase, endoamylase, Taka-amylase A, 1,4-α-D-glucan glucanohydrolase

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme catalyzes the endohydrolysis of (1→4)-α-D-glucosidic linkages in polysaccharides containing three or more (1→4)-α-linked D-glucose units.

Acts on starch, glycogen and related polysaccharides and oligosaccharides in a random manner; reducing groups are liberated in the α-configuration. The term "α" relates to the initial anomeric configuration of the free sugar group released and not to the configuration of the linkage hydrolysed.
