IUBMB Comments

The enzyme from intestinal mucosa contains two glycosyl hydrolase domains, both of which belong to glycosyl hydrolase family 1 (GH1). While the first domain catalyses the activity described here, the second domain catalyses the reaction of EC 3.2.1.62 glycosylceramidase. cf. EC 3.2.1.33 amylo-α-1,6-glucosidase.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Eukaryota, Bacteria
