Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Alpha-glucosidase; weak, but broad substrate specificity for alpha-1,4- and alpha-1,6-glucosides; member of IMA isomaltase family; not required for isomaltose utilization, but Ima3p overexpression allows the ima1 null mutant to grow on isomaltose; lower activitiy and thermostability in vitro than Ima2p despite sequence difference of only 3 amino acids; cleaves alpha-1,3 linkage of nigerose and turanose, but not alpha-1,5 of leucrose; identical to IMA4 [Source:SGD;Acc:S000001434]


Chromosome IX: 16,784-18,553 reverse strand.
