add 2 µL of enzyme to 100 µg of glycoprotein or 1 nmol of oligosaccharide. Add buffer and incubate 3 hours at 37°C. NOTE: longer incubation times are necessary if branched sialic acids are present.
Specifictity Cleaves all non-reducing terminal branched and unbranched sialic acids
Specific Activity Defined as the amount of enzyme required to produce 1 µmole of methylumbelliferone in 1 minute at 37°C, pH 5.0 from MU-NANA [2'-(4-methylumbelliferyl)-alpha-D-N-acetylneuraminic acid].
Storage Store enzyme at 4°C.
