- Glycosphingolipid deacylase
enzymology, a glycosphingolipid deacylase (EC number|22.214.171.124) is an enzymethat catalyzes a chemical reactionthat cleaves gangliosides and neutral glycosphingolipids, releasing fatty acids to form the lyso-derivatives.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
hydrolases, specifically those acting on carbon-nitrogen bonds other than peptide bonds, specifically in linear amides. The systematic name of this enzyme class is glycosphingolipid amidohydrolase. This enzyme is also called glycosphingolipid ceramide deacylase.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|122544-53-0."
