Part number E-GL01
Source recombinant from Streptococcus pneumoniae in E. Coli.
60 µl aliquot of enzyme (2.4 U) in 20 mM Tris-HCl, 175 mM NaCl, pH 7.5
5x Reaction Buffer 250 mM sodium phosphate, pH 5.0
Specific Activity >50 U/mg
Activity >80 U/ml
Molecular weight ~140,000 daltons
pH range 5-7, optimum 5.0
1. Add up to 100 µg of glycoprotein or 1 nmole of oligosaccharide to a tube.
2. Adjust to 14 µl final volume with de-ionized water.
3. Add 4 µl 5x reaction buffer (pH 5.0)
3. Add 2 µl of Glucosaminidase
4. Incubate 18 hours at 37°C.
NOTE: Shorter incubation times are possible if bisecting GlcNAc or beta(1-2)GlcNAc-alpha(1-6)Man are present.
Specifictity Cleaves all non-reducing terminal Beta-linked N-acetylglucosamine. Bisecting GlcNAc slows the reaction.
Specific Activity Defined as the amount of enzyme required to produce 1 µmole of p-nitrophenol in 1 minute at 37°C, pH 5.0 from <->p-nitrophenyl-Beta-D-N-acetyl-glucosaminide
Storage Store enzyme at 4°C.
