A purified beta-mannosidase (EC 184.108.40.206) from the fungus Trichoderma reesei has been identified as a member of glycoside hydrolase family 2 through mass spectrometry analysis of tryptic peptides. In addition to hydrolysis, the enzyme catalyzes substrate transglycosylation with p-nitrophenyl beta-mannopyranoside. Structures of the major and minor products of this reaction were identified by NMR analysis as p-nitrophenyl mannobiosides and p-nitrophenyl mannotriosides containing beta-(1 -> 4) and beta-(1 -> 3) linkages. The rate of donor substrate hydrolysis increased in presence of acetonitrile and dimethylformamide, while transglycosylation was weakly suppressed by these organic solvents. Differential ultraviolet spectra of the protein indicate that a rearrangement of the hydrophobic environment of the active site following the addition of the organic solvents may be responsible for this hydrolytic activation.
