The conformational reaction pathway for β-mannosidases proposed here is distinct from that of glucosidases and cellulases. The proposal is based on substrate distortions along the reaction pathway of a β-mannosidase (see picture) that were revealed by X-ray crystallography and are close in conformational space to known β-mannosidase inhibitors.
