Endo H cleaves Asparagine-linked hybrid or high mannose oligosaccharides, but not complex oligosaccharides. It cleaves between the two N-acetylglucosamine residues in the diacetyl chitobiose core of the oligosaccharide, generating a truncated sugar molecule with one N-acetylglucosamine residue remaining on the asparagine. In contrast, PNGase F removes the oligosaccharide intact. Detergent and heat denaturation may increase the rate of cleavage for some glycoproteins.

Kit includes enzyme plus reaction buffers. Sufficient for up to 60 reactions.

Product Specifications:

Source: recombinant from Streptomyces plicatus in E.Coli


Alternative Names: Endo H, endo-β-N-acetylglucosaminidase H, Endoglycosidase H

Specific Activity: One unit of Endo H activity is defined as the amount of enzyme required to catalyze the release of N-linked oligosaccharides from 1 µmole of denatured Ribonuclease B. Cleavage is monitored by SDS-PAGE (cleaved Ribonuclease B migrates faster).

60 µL aliquot of enzyme (300 mU) in 20 mM Tris-HCl, 25 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA (pH 7.5).
200 µL 5x Reaction Buffer 5.5 (250 mM sodium phosphate, pH 5.5)
Denaturation Solution - 2% SDS, 1 M Beta-mercaptoethanol

Specific Activity: >40 U/mg

Activity: >5 U/mL

Molecular weight: 29,000 daltons

pH range: 5-6, optimum 5.5

Suggested usage:
1. Add up to 200 µg of glycoprotein to Eppendorf tube. Adjust to 37.5 µL final volume with deionized water.
2. Add 10 µL 5X Endo H Buffer and 2.5 µL of Denaturation Solution (SDS/-ME). Heat at 100°C for 5 minutes.
3. Cool, and then add 2.0 µL of Endo H to the reaction. Incubate 3 hours at 37°C.

Storage: Store enzyme at 4°C.

Stability: Stable at least 12 months when stored properly. Several days exposure to ambient tempertures will not reduce activity.

Purity: Endoglycosidase H is tested for contaminating protease as follows; 10 µg of denatured BSA is incubated for 24 hours at 37°C with 2 µL of enzyme. SDS-PAGE analysis of the treated BSA shows no evidence of degradation.

The production host strain has been extensively tested and does not produce any detectable glycosidases.
