Reaction: Hydrolysis of terminal, non-reducing α-D-mannose residues in α-D-mannosides
Systematic name: α-D-mannoside mannohydrolase
Other name(s): α-D-mannosidase; p-nitrophenyl-α-mannosidase; α-D-mannopyranosidase; 1,2-α-mannosidase; 1,2-α-D-mannosidase; exo-α-mannosidase
Comments: Also hydrolyses α-D-lyxosides and heptopyranosides with the same configuration at C-2, C-3 and C-4 as mannose.
