MetaCyc Reaction: 3.2.1.62

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

EC Number: 3.2.1.62

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: 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 3.2.1.45 (glucosylceramidase) and EC 3.2.1.46 (galactosylceramidase)]. Also hydrolyses phlorizin to phloretin and glucose. The intestinal enzyme is a complex that also catalyses the reaction of EC 3.2.1.108 lactase.
