EC 3.1.6.15     
Accepted name: N-sulfoglucosamine-3-sulfatase
Reaction: Hydrolysis of the 3-sulfate groups of the N-sulfo-D-glucosamine 3-O-sulfate units of heparin
Other name(s): chondroitinsulfatase
Systematic name: N-sulfo-3-sulfoglucosamine 3-sulfohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme from Flavobacterium heparinum also hydrolyses N-acetyl-D-glucosamine 3-O-sulfate; the mammalian enzyme acts only on the disulfated residue.
