IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: 6-phospho-β-glucosidase

Reaction: 6-phospho-β-D-glucosyl-(1→4)-D-glucose + H2O = D-glucose + D-glucose 6-phosphate

Other name(s): phospho-β-glucosidase A; phospho-β-glucosidase; phosphocellobiase; 6-phospho-β-D-glucosyl-(1,4)-D-glucose glucohydrolase

Systematic name: 6-phospho-β-D-glucosyl-(1→4)-D-glucose glucohydrolase

Comments: Also hydrolyses several other phospho-β-D-glucosides, but not their non-phosphorylated forms.
