Dextran 1,6-alpha-isomaltotriosidase (EC 3.2.1.95, exo-isomaltotriohydrolase, 1,6-alpha-D-glucan isomaltotriohydrolase) is an enzyme with systematic name 6-alpha-D-glucan isomaltotriohydrolase.[1] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

Hydrolysis of (1->6)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages in dextrans, to remove successive isomaltotriose units from the non-reducing ends of the chains
