Reaction: 3'-dehydrosucrose + H2O = 3-dehydro-D-glucopyranose + β-D-fructofuranose
Other name(s): 3'-keto-α-D-gluco-disaccharide hydrolase; α-3-ketoglucosidase (incorrect); 3-keto-glucoside hydrolase
Systematic name: 3'-dehydrosucrose 3'-dehydroglucohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme, originally characterized from the bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens, is specific for disaccharides that contain a 3-dehydro-α-D-glucose at the non-reducing end such as 3'-dehydrosucrose and 3'-dehydro-α,α-trehalose. It has no activity with disaccharides in which the glucose is in β conformation, and greatly reduced activity with disaccharides with an unmodified 3' position.
