Accepted name: exo-acting protein-α-N-acetylgalactosaminidase
Reaction: a [protein]-N-acetyl-α-D-galactosalaminyl-(L-serine/L-threonine) + H2O = a [protein]-(L-serine/L-threonine) + N-acetyl-D-galactosamine
Other name(s): Nag31
Systematic name: [protein]-N-acetyl-α-D-galactosalaminyl-(L-serine/L-threonine) N-acetylgalactosaminohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme, which belongs to the glycosylhydrolase 31 (GH31) family, is an exo-acting α-N-acetylgalactosaminidase that acts on the innermost α-GalNAc residues at the core of O-glycans when no other saccharides are attached to it. Unlike EC, α-N-acetylgalactosaminidase, it is not able to act on blood group A antigen.
