Glycosidases, i.e. enzymes that hydrolyse O- and S-glycosyl compounds
Endohydrolysis of (2->8)-alpha-sialosyl linkages in oligo- or poly(sialic) acids
Although the name endo-N-acetylneuraminidase has also been used for this enzyme, this is misleading since its activity is not restricted to acetylated substrates. An exo-alpha-sialidase activity is listed as EC 220.127.116.11 exo-alpha-sialidase. See also EC 18.104.22.168 anhydrosialidase.
Use of a bacteriophage-derived endo-N-acetylneuraminidase and an equine antipolysialyl antibody to characterize the polysialyl residues in salmonid fish egg polysialoglycoproteins. Substrate and immunospecificity studies.
