Accepted name: reuteransucrase
Reaction: formation of reuteran from sucrose
Glossary: reuteran = a high-molecular-mass branched α-glucan produced by the lactic acid bacterium Limosilactobacillus reuteri.
Systematic name: sucrose:α-D-glucan 4-α/6-α-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: The glucansucrases transfer a D-glucosyl residue from sucrose to a glucan chain. They are classified based on the linkage of the transferred glucosyl residue. The enzyme, characterized from the lactic acid bacterium Limosilactobacillus reuteri strain 121, catalyses the hydrolysis of sucrose and the transfer of the D-glucose moiety to suitable acceptors (inclduing sucrose), forming the glucan reuteran, which is typical for these strains. The enzyme forms mostly α(1→4) glucosidic linkages, but also α(1→6) linkages. The presence of maltose significantly accelerate the initial rate of the reaction. See EC, dextransucrase.
