IUBMB Comments

The enzyme hydrolyses the second glycosidic (1→4) linkage from reducing ends of chitin and chitodextrin molecules, liberating N,N′-diacetylchitobiose disaccharides. cf. EC 3.2.1.200, exo-chitinase (non-reducing end).

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