Substrate specificities

Enzymes of glycoside hydrolase family 114 are endo-α-1,4-polygalactosaminidases. Examples include the foundation member of this family from Pseudomonas sp. 881 [1] and Ega3 from Aspergillus fumigatus [2]. This enzyme hydrolyzes α-1,4-polygalactosamine to oligosaccharides in an endo-acting manner. α-1,4-Polygalactosamine, also known as galactosaminoglycan, is a polymer consisting of α-1,4-linked galactosamine residues, which is only partially N-acetylated, and may also contain N-formyl residues. The polysaccharide is biosynthesized by fungi including Aspergillus parasiticus [3] and Paecilomyces sp. I-1 [4]. An endogalactosaminidase has been purified from Streptomyces griseus; the sequence of this protein is unknown [5].

Kinetics and Mechanism

The endo-α-1,4-polygalactosaminidase from Pseudomonas sp. 881 possesses activity on deacetylated α-1,4-polygalactosamine, but has no activity on fully N-acetylated α-1,4-polygalactosamine [6]. Tetraose and longer galactosamine oligosaccharides are hydrolyzed to galactosaminobiose and galactosaminotriose as the final products [7]. Based on the dependence of rate on the chain length of the substrate, it was proposed that the enzyme has 8 subsites [7]. The enzyme is inhibited by metal ions including Hg2+, Fe2+ and Sn2+ [6]. Digest of galactosaminotetraose resulted in the transient formation of galactosaminohexaose through a transglycosylation reaction [7]. This supports the assignment of a retaining mechanism to this enzyme and family, and is consistent with the enzyme utilizing a classical Koshland double-displacement mechanism.
