Substrate recognition by three family 13 yeast alpha-glucosidases.

Important hydrogen bonding interactions between substrate OH-groups in yeast alpha-glucosidases and oligo-1,6-glucosidase from glycoside hydrolase family 13 have been identified by measuring the rates of hydrolysis of methyl alpha-isomaltoside and its seven monodeoxygenated analogs. The transition-state stabilization energy, DeltaDeltaG, contributed by the… CONTINUE READING
