Comments
This enzyme belongs to glycosidase family-27, with a retaining mechanism.
Alpha-galactosidases can be classified into glycosidase family-4, 27, 36, 57, 97 and 110 (see [9]). Alpha-galactosidases from eukaryotes are generally classified into glycosidase family-27, whereas prokaryotic alpha-galactosidases are mostly classified into glycosidase family-36 (see [9]).
This enzyme is homologous to Alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase (EC 3.2.1.49; D00665 in EzCatDB) and a counterpart enzyme from other organisms (EC 3.2.1.22; D00664), which shows different substrate specificities from this enzyme. This enzyme is specific only for galactomannan, whereas the counterpart enzyme is also active toward other alpha-galactosides (see [9]).
However, considering the conservation of the active-site structure, this enzyme must catalyze the same reaction type as these homologous enzymes.
Asp129 acts as a nucleophile, whereas Asp189 acts as catalytic acid-base.
