Entry
EC 3.1.1.73                 Enzyme                                 

Name
feruloyl esterase;
ferulic acid esterase;
hydroxycinnamoyl esterase;
hemicellulase accessory enzyme;
FAE-III;
cinnamoyl ester hydrolase;
FAEA;
cinnAE;
FAE-I;
FAE-II
Class

Acting on ester bonds;
Carboxylic-ester hydrolases
Sysname
4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamoyl-sugar hydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
feruloyl-polysaccharide + H2O = ferulate + polysaccharide [RN:R07292]
Reaction(KEGG)
R07292
Substrate
feruloyl-polysaccharide [CPD:C06741];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
ferulate [CPD:C01494];
polysaccharide [CPD:C00420]
Comment
Catalyses the hydrolysis of the 4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamoyl (feruloyl) group from an esterified sugar, which is usually arabinose in "natural" substrates. p-Nitrophenol acetate and methyl ferulate are poorer substrates. All microbial ferulate esterases are secreted into the culture medium. They are sometimes called hemicellulase accessory enzymes, since they help xylanases and pectinases to break down plant cell wall hemicellulose.
