PNGase F, peptide-N-glycosidase F, peptide-N4-(N-acetyl-β-glucosaminyl)asparagine amidase. Releases intact N-glycans by cleaving between the innermost GlcNAc and Asn.
Recombinant gene from Elizabethkingia meningosepticum, expressed in E. coli. The source organism was previously known as Chryseobacterium [Flavobacterium] meningosepticum .
Cleaves all N-linked complex, hybrid or high mannose oligosaccharides, unless α(1-3) core fucosylated, as in plant glycans. Asparagine must be peptide-bonded at both termini. Phosphate, sulfate and sialic acid groups attached to the oligosaccharide do not affect cleavage. Endo F free. Highly concentrated, particularly useful for deglycosylation under native conditions.
Figure 1: Cleavage specificity for GKE-5010 N-Glycanase (PNGase F).
R1: N & C substitution other than H
R2: may be H or the rest of an oligosaccharide
R3: may be H or α(1-6)-linked fucose
To obtain efficient deglycosylation of glycoprotein substrates under non-denaturing conditions, it is necessary to use a higher starting concentration of enzyme. N-Glycanase® PLUS and ULTRA (EDTA-Free) are supplied at ≥ 10 U/ml, and are recommended for all applications requiring deglycosylation of glycoproteins in the absence of denaturants. The high activity also allows smaller reaction volumes and shorter reaction times to be explored.
20 mM Tris HCl pH 7.5, containing 1 mM EDTA and 50 mM NaCl
7.5 - 9.5
One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to catalyze the release of N-linked oligosaccharides from 1 μmole of denatured ribonuclease B per minute at pH 7.5 and 37°C.
Size: 1 U (100 µl)
Concentration: ≥ 10 U/ml
