ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
N-acetylglucosaminylphosphatidylinositol deacetylase.
Alternative Name(s)
Acetylglucosaminylphosphatidylinositol deacetylase.
GlcNAc-PI de-N-acetylase.
GlcNAc-PI deacetylase.
N-acetyl-D-glucosaminylphosphatidylinositol acetylhydrolase.
N-acetylglucosaminylphosphatidylinositol de-N-acetylase.
Reaction catalysed
6-(N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl)-1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol + H(2)O <=> 6-(alpha-D-glucosaminyl)-1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol + acetate
  • Involved in the second step of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor formation in all eukaryotes.
  • The enzyme appears to be composed of a single subunit (PIG-L in mammalian cells and GPI12 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae).
  • In some species, the long-chain sn-1-acyl group of the phosphatidyl group is replaced by a long-chain alkyl or alk-1-enyl group.
  • Formerly EC
