Glyko® Endo F2 [GKE-5008]

$ 256.00


Cleaves within the chitobiose (GlcNAc-GlcNAc) core of high mannose and biantennary complex type N-glycans. Endoglycosidase F2, endo-beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase. 

Recombinant gene from Elizabethkingia meningoseptica, expressed in E. coli. The source organism was previously known as Chryseobacterium [Flavobacterium] meningosepticum1

The enzyme cleaves within the di-N-acetyl chitobiose  (GlcNAc-GlcNAc) core of high mannose and biantennary complex type N-linked glycans of oligosaccharide, glycopeptide or glycoprotein substrates. A single GlcNAc residue remains attached to the molecule after hydrolysis, the rest of the glycan is released. This specificity is distinct from PNGase F (GKE-5006), which cleaves between asparagine and the innermost GlcNAc of N-linked glycans. EndoF2 cleaves between GlcNAc-GlcNac in biantennary glycans at a rate approximately 20 times higher than high mannose glycans. The enzyme is not active towards hybrid type or tri- and tetraantennary oligosaccharides.
