ENZYME entry: EC 1.1.1.240

Accepted Name
N-acetylhexosamine 1-dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine + H(2)O + NAD(+) <=> N-acetyl-D-glucosaminate + NADH
Comment(s)
  • Also acts on N-acetylgalactosamine and, more slowly, on N-acetylmannosamine.
  • Anomeric specificity was tested with N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, and it was shown that the enzyme is specific for the alpha anomer.
