ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.129

Accepted Name
Endo-alpha-sialidase.
Alternative Name(s)
Endo-N-acetylneuraminidase.
Endoneuraminidase.
Poly(alpha-2,8-sialosyl) endo-N-acetylneuraminidase.
Reaction catalysed
Endohydrolysis of (2->8)-alpha-sialosyl linkages in oligo- or poly(sialic) acids
Comment(s)
  • Although the name endo-N-acetylneuraminidase has also been used for this enzyme, this is misleading since its activity is not restricted to acetyl-substituted substrates.
  • An exo-alpha-sialidase activity is listed as EC 3.2.1.18.
  • See also 4.2.2.15.
