Abstract/OtherAbstract:
α-Glucuronidases of glycoside hydrolase family 115 of the xylose-fermenting yeast Pichia stipitis and wood-destroying fungus Schizophyllum commune liberate 4-O-methyl-D-glucuronic acid residues from aldouronic acids and glucuronoxylan. The specific activities of both enzymes depended on polymerization degree of the acidic xylooligosaccharides and were inhibited by linear β-1,4-xylooligosaccharides. These results suggest interaction of the enzyme with several xylopyranosyl residues of the xylan main chain. Using (1)H NMR spectroscopy and reduced aldopentaouronic acid (MeGlcA(3)Xyl(4)-ol) as a substrate, it was found that both enzymes are inverting glycoside hydrolases releasing 4-O-methyl-D-glucuronic acid (MeGlcA) as its β-anomer.
