|Endohydrolysis of beta-(1->4)-linkages between D-glucosamine residues in a partly acetylated chitosan|
- A whole spectrum of chitosanases are now known that can hydrolyze
various types of links in chitosan.
- The only constant property is the endohydrolysis of GlcN-GlcN links,
which is common to all known chitosanases.
- One known chitosanase is limited to this link recognition, while the
majority can also recognize GlcN-GlcNAc links or GlcNAc-GlcN links
but not both.
- They also do not recognize GlcNAc-GlcNAc links in partly acetylated
