The primary structure of the N-linked sugar chain of Rhizopus niveus glucoamylase (major component) was investigated. The carbohydrate moiety was released from the polypeptide backbone by Flavobacterium sp. endo-β-N-acetylglucosaminidase digestion. Studies using the method of exoglycosidase digestion of the fluorescent pyridylamino derivative, gel-permeation chromatography on Bio-Gel P-4 and 400-MHz 1H-NMR spectroscopy revealed that the most abundant structure is (Man)8-GlcNAc-ol.
