Enzyme Commission Primary Name: keratan-sulfate endo-1,4-β-galactosidase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: endo-β-galactosidase, keratan sulfate endogalactosidase, keratanase, keratan-sulfate 1,4-β-D-galactanohydrolase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme catalyzes endohydrolysis of (1→4)-β-D-galactosidic linkages in keratan sulfate .
Hydrolyses the 1,4-β-D-galactosyl linkages adjacent to 1,3-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl residues. Also acts on some non-sulfated oligosaccharides, but only acts on blood group substances when the 1,2-linked fucosyl residues have been removed (cf. EC 22.214.171.124, blood-group-substance endo-1,4-β-galactosidase).
