Ludger Beta-(1-4)-galactosidase enzyme structure

    β(1-4)-galactosidase


    E-BG07

    Non-reducing terminal β(1-4)-Galactose. Number of antennae does not affect cleavage rate. Fucose linked to the penultimate N-acetylglucosamine will block cleavage of the galactose.

    Product Specifications:


    β Galactosidase from Streptococcus pneumoniae releases only β(1-4) linked, non-reducing terminal galactose from complex carbohydrates and glycoproteins. β(1-4) galactose is by far the most common linkage found in N-linked oligosaccharides. For other galactosidase linkages, β(1-3,4,6)-Galactosidase (E-BG02) from Bovine testes is recommended. The enzyme is as active on tetraantennary oligosaccharides as on disaccharides containing β(1-4)-linked galactose. Fucose linked to the penultimate N-acetylglucosamine will block cleavage of the galactose. Up to 100 µg of asialofetuin can be completely β(1-4)-degalactosylated in less than 1 hour using 3 mU of enzyme.

    EC: 3.2.1.23

    Alternate Names: β-D-galactoside galactohydrolase, Exo-(1-4)-β-D-galactanase, Lactase

    Contents:
    Ludger Beta-(1-4)-galactosidase - Kit Contents
    β-(1-4) Galactosidase in 20 mM Tris-HCl, 25 mM NaCl (pH 7.5).
    5x Reaction Buffer 6.0 (250 mM sodium phosphate, pH 6.0).

    Specific Activity: >6 U/mg
    Activity: >3 U/mL

    Molecular weight: ~250,000 daltons

    Suggested Usage:
    1. Add up to 100 µg of asialoglycoprotein or 1 nmol of oligosaccharide to tube.
    2. Add water to 14 µL
    3. Add 4 µL 5X Reaction Buffer
    4. Add 2 µL β(1-4) Galactosidase
    5. Incubate at 37°C for 1 hour.

    For glycoproteins, cleavage may be monitored by SDS-PAGE if the size differential between native and de-galactosylated protein is sufficient for detection.

    Note: The optimum for cleavage of oligosaccharides is ~ pH 6.0.

    Specificity: Non-reducing terminal β(1-4)-galactose. Number of antennae does not affect cleavage rate. Fucose linked to the penultimate N-acetylglucosamine will block cleavage of the galactose.

    Specific Activity Assay: One unit of β Galactosidase is defined as the amount of enzyme required to produce 1 µmole of p-nitrophenol (pNP) in 1 minute at 37°C pH 5 from p-nitrophenyl-β-D-galactopyranoside.

    Storage: Store enzyme at 4°C.

    Purity: Each lot of β Galactosidase is tested for contaminating protease as follows; 10 µg of denatured BSA is incubated for 24 hours 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.

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