Sialidase-3 (IPR026944)

Short name: Sialidase-3

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Sialidases catalyse hydrolysis of alpha-(2->3)-, alpha-(2->6)-, alpha-(2->8)- glycosidic linkages of terminal sialic acid residues in oligosaccharides, glycoproteins, glycolipids, colominic acid and synthetic substrates. This entry represents sialidase-3, which plays a role in modulating the ganglioside content of the lipid bilayer at the level of membrane-bound sialyl glycoconjugates [PMID: 9988745, PMID: 10861246].
