Hydrolyses non-reducing terminal Galβ(1-6)GlcNAc and Galβ(1-4)GlcNAc. Galβ(1-3)GlcNAc is hydrolyzed very slowly. The relative rates of hydrolysis are: β(1-6), 100%; β(1-4) 75%; and β(1-3), 1%. Galβ(1-6) and Galβ(1-3) can also be released from other aglycones although the rates of hydrolysis are variable.

The enzyme has been extensively used for the study of isolated glycans, glycolipids and glycoproteins.
WS0108 5x Reaction Buffer [250 mM sodium citrate phosphate (pH 3.5)]
Lyophilized from 20 mM sodium citrate/phosphate pH 6.0.
5X concentrated buffer which when diluted gives 50 mM sodium citrate pH 3.5.
MW: ~75 kDa
3.5 - 4.5
One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to hydrolyze 1 μmole of pNP-β-D-galactopyranoside per minute at pH 3.5 and 37°C.
Size: 5 U lyophilized
Product Code: GKX-5012
Q. The product is supplied lyophilized. How do I resuspend it?
A. Instructions for reconstitution of GKX-5012 are contained in the Certificate of Analysis. Dissolve the lyophilizate in 200 μl of high purity water to obtain the described
formulation (20 mM sodium citrate phosphate, pH 6.0). Since the enzyme will be more concentrated than is required for most applications, dilute further with buffer as needed.
