Also acts on porphyran, but more slowly . This enzyme cleaves the β-(1→4) linkages of agarose in a random manner with retention of the anomeric-bond configuration, producing β-anomers that give rise progressively to α-anomers when mutarotation takes place . The end products of hydrolysis are neoagarotetraose and neoagarohexaose in the case of AgaA from the marine bacterium Zobellia galactanivorans, and neoagarotetraose and neoagarobiose in the case of AgaB .

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

Synonyms
agarase, beta-agarase, aga50d, lsl-1, endo-type beta-agarase, agaac, agarase 0107, beta-agarase a, beta-agarase c, agab34, more
