Sequences and genome annotation information for Reference Strain S288C and a select set of Alternative References.

Protein Product
oligo-1,6-glucosidase IMA2
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Isomaltase (alpha-1,6-glucosidase/alpha-methylglucosidase); preferred specificity for isomaltose, alpha-methylglucoside, and palatinose, but also exhibits alpha-1,2 glucosidase activity on sucrose and kojibiose, and can cleave the 1,3-alpha linkage of nigerose and turanose and the alpha-1,5 linkage of leucrose in vitro; not required for isomaltose utilization, but Ima2p overexpression allows the ima1 null mutant to grow on isomaltose 1 2 3 4
