  • FAQ: What is the difference between β-N-Acetylglucosaminidase and β-N-Acetylhexosaminidasef?

    β-N-Acetylglucosaminidase is not a general β-hexosamindase, it is instead a highly specific exoglycosidase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of all linkages of terminal, non-reducing β-N-Acetylglucosamine (β-GlcNAc) residues from oligosaccharides. β-hexosaminidase can remove both β-N-Acetylglucosamine (β-GlcNAc) and β-N-Acetylgalactesamine (β-GalNAc).
