Part number E-G001
Source Recombinant Streptococcus pneumoniae in E.Coli
60 µl aliquot of enzyme (75 mU) in 50 mM sodium phosphate, pH 7.5.
5x Reaction Buffer 5.0 (250 mM sodium phosphate, pH 5.0)
Specific Activity >12 U/mg
Activity 1.25 U/ml
Molecular weight 180,000 daltons
pH range 5-7, optimum 5.0
1. Add up to 100 µg of glycoprotein to a tube.
2. Add de-ionized water to a total of 13 µl.
3. Add 4 µl of 5x Reaction Buffer 5.0.
4. Add 1 µl of Sialadase(a 2-,3,6,8,9), part number E-S001.
5. Add 2 µl of O-Glycosidase.
6. Incubate for 1 hour at 37°C.
Specifictity Cleaves only unsubstituted Gal-Beta(1-3)GalNAc-alpha disaccharides attached to the serine or threonine residues of glycoproteins or glycopeptides. Substitutions such as sialic acid, galactose, fucose or N-acetylglucosamine must first be removed with the appropriate exoglycosidase prior to treatment with Endo-O-Glycosidase.
At minimum, a sialadase such as Sialidase(alpha-2-3,6,8,9), part number E-S001, is almost always required to remove sialic acids
Specific Activity Defined as the amount of enzyme required to produce 1 µmole of p-nitrophenol (pNP) in 1 minute at 37°C, pH 5.0 from p-nitrophenyl- 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-3-O-(Beta-D-galactopyranosyl)-alpha- D-galactopyranoside.
Storage Store enzyme at 4°C.
