Endo-alpha-N-acetyl-D-galactosaminidase.
Glycopeptide alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase.
Mucinaminylserine mucinaminidase.
Reaction catalysed
3-O-beta-D-galactosyl-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosaminyl-L-serine-[protein] + H(2)O <=> 3-O-beta-D-galactosyl-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine + L-serine-[protein]
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme catalyzes the liberation of Gal-(1->3)-beta-GalNAc alpha- linked to serine or threonine residues of mucin-type glycoproteins.
  • EngBF from Bifidobacterium longum specifically acts on core 1-type O-glycan to release the disaccharide Gal-(1->3)-beta-GalNAc.
  • The enzymes from Clostridium perfringens, Enterococcus faecalis, Propionibacterium acnes and Alcaligenes faecalis show broader specificity (e.g. release of the core 2 trisaccharide Gal-(1->3)- beta-(GlcNAc-(1->6)-beta)-GalNAc or the core 3 disaccharide GlcNAc- (1->3)-beta-GalNAc).
  • The enzyme may play an important role in the degradation and utilization of mucins having core 1 O-glycan.
  • Formerly EC 3.2.1.110.
