SmartEnzymes GalNAcEXO workflow

Hydrolysis of α-linked GalNAcs

The GalNAcEXO enzyme is an α-N-Acetylgalactosaminidase for efficient hydrolysis of terminal GalNAc residues on glycoproteins.

GalNAcs linked to serine or threonine, referred to as Tn antigen, are quickly and efficiently hydrolyzed by GalNAcEXO, and the enzyme also displays activity on α1-3-linked terminal GalNAcs.

The enzyme is a valuable tool that reduces sample heterogeneity for the analysis of complex O-glycoproteins that carry α-linked GalNAc residues as immature truncated core 1.

About GalNAcEXO

GalNAcEXO workflow

GalNAcEXO is an  exo-α-N-Acetylgalactosaminidase for efficient hydrolysis of α-N-Acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) linked to serine or threonine residues in glycoproteins (Tn antigen). The enzyme also displays activity on α1-3-linked terminal GalNAc.

GalNAcEXO hydrolyzes GalNAc on glycoproteins under native conditions and is highly active in the pH range 6.0 to 7.6. No co-factors or special buffers are required. The enzyme in GalNAcEXO is derived from Akkermansia muciniphila, expressed in  E. coli with a His-tag, and has a molecular weight of 52 kDa.
