Abstract

Endo-β-N-acetylglucosaminidase from Arthrobacter protophormiae was activated by the addition of glucose, mannose, N-acetylglucosamine, and β-allose. While the enzyme did not appear to be significantly affected by the addition of galactose or N-acetylgalactosamine. These results indicate that the C-4 and C-6 positions of the monosaccharide are the most important for enzyme activation. Moreover, the enzyme was activated by the addition of disaccharides such as cellobiose, gentiobiose, and di-N-acetylchitobiose, but not by polysaccharides such as starch and yeast mannan. In the presence of N-acetylglucosamine, the enzyme activation occurred well over pH 4.0 and the Km value of the enzyme for (Man)6(GlcNAc)2-Asn-dansyl changes from 1.2 mM to 3.2 mM.
