Reaction: an α-D-glucuronoside + H2O = an alcohol + D-glucuronate
Other name(s): α-glucosiduronase
Systematic name: α-D-glucosiduronate glucuronohydrolase
Comments: considerable differences in the specificities of the enzymes from different fungi for α-D-glucosiduronates have been reported. Activity is also found in the snail.
