Accepted name: keratan-sulfate endo-1,4-β-galactosidase
Reaction: Endohydrolysis of (1→4)-β-D-galactosidic linkages in keratan sulfate
Other name(s): endo-β-galactosidase (ambiguous); keratan sulfate endogalactosidase; keratanase; keratan-sulfate 1,4-β-D-galactanohydrolase
Systematic name: keratan-sulfate 4-β-D-galactanohydrolase
Comments: Hydrolyses the 1,4-β-D-galactosyl linkages adjacent to 1,3-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl residues. Also acts on some non-sulfated oligosaccharides, but only acts on blood group substances when the 1,2-linked fucosyl residues have been removed (cf. EC blood-group-substance endo-1,4-β-galactosidase).
