Substrate
oligoglycosylglucosyl-(1<->1)-ceramide;
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
ceramide [CPD:C00195];
oligoglycosylglucose [CPD:C03018]
Comment
An enzyme from Rhodococcus sp. that degrades various acidic and neutral glycosphingolipids to oligosaccharides and ceramides, by cleaving a glucosyl bond. Does not act on monoglycosylceramides. cf. EC 3.2.1.62 glycosylceramidase.
