Name
glucan 1,4-alpha-glucosidase activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
1,4-alpha-D-glucan glucohydrolase activity, amyloglucosidase activity, exo-1,4-alpha-glucosidase activity, gamma-1,4-glucan glucohydrolase activity, gamma-amylase activity, glucoamylase activity, glucose amylase activity, lysosomal alpha-glucosidase activity
Definition
Catalysis of the hydrolysis of terminal (1->4)-linked alpha-D-glucose residues successively from non-reducing ends of the chains with release of beta-D-glucose. Source: EC:3.2.1.3
Comment
Note that this term is not a child of 'alpha-glucosidase activity ; GO:0090599', because in the reaction represented by GO:0004339 results in the release of beta-D-glucose, whereas in GO:0090599 alpha-D-glucose is released.
