Product Description

Beta galactosidase, β-D-galactoside galactohydrolase, Exo-(1-3,6)-beta-D-galactanase,
Lactase

Beta Galactosidase from Xanthamonas cleaves β(1-3)- and β(1-6)-linked, non-reducing terminal galactose from complex carbohydrates and glycoproteins. β(1-4) linked galactose is cleaved at <1% of the β(1-3) rate, and only on linear oligosaccharides. Fucose, but not sialic acid, linked to the penultimate N-acetylglucosamine will block cleavage of the galactose  .

Source recombinant Xanthamonas in E. Coli
EC 3.2.1.23

Contents
ß-(1-3,6) Galactosidase in 20 mM Tris, .25 mM NaCl (pH 7.5).

Included with 20 µL and 60 µL pack sizes:
5X Reaction buffer 5.0 – 250 mM NaPO4, pH 5.0.

Specific Activity >85 U/mg
Activity >50 U/ml

Molecular weight ~65,000 daltons

Suggested Usage
1. Add up to 100 μg of asialoglycoprotein or 1 nmol of oligosaccharide to tube.
2. Add water to 13 μL
3. Add 4 μL 5X Reaction Buffer
4. Add 2 μL β(1-3,6) Galactosidase
5. Incubate at 37°C for 1 hour.

For glycoproteins, cleavage may be monitored by SDS-PAGE if the size differential between native and de-galactosylated protein is sufficient for detection.

Specifictity Non-reducing terminal Beta-(1-3,6)-galactose. Number of antennae does not affect cleavage rate. Fucose linked to the penultimate N-acetylglucosamine will block cleavage of the galactose.

Specific Activity Assay One unit of Beta Galactosidase is defined as the amount of enzyme required to produce 1 µmole of p-nitrophenol (pNP) in 1 minute at 37˚C pH 5 from p-nitrophenyl-beta-D-galactopyranoside.

Storage Store enzyme at 4˚C.

Purity Each lot of Beta Galactosidase is tested for contaminating protease as follows; 10 μg of denatured BSA is incubated for 24 hours with 2 μL of enzyme. SDS-PAGE analysis of the treated BSA shows no evidence of degradation.

The production host strain has been extensively tested and does not produce any detectable glycosidases.

Stability Stable at least 12 months when stored properly. Several days exposure to ambient temperatures will not reduce activity.
