ENZYME entry: EC 5.1.3.24

Accepted Name
N-acetylneuraminate epimerase.
Alternative Name(s)
Alpha-N-acetylneuraminic acid epimerase.
Sialic acid epimerase.
Sialic acid mutarotase.
Reaction catalysed
N-acetyl-alpha-neuraminate <=> N-acetyl-beta-neuraminate
Comment(s)
  • Sialoglycoconjugates present in vertebrates are linked exclusively by alpha-linkages and are released in alpha form during degradation.
  • This enzyme accelerates maturotation to the beta form (which also occurs as a slow spontaneous reaction), which is necessary for further metabolism by the bacteria.
  • Formerly EC 5.1.3.n1.
