Sialidase-2 (IPR026945)

Short name: Sialidase-2

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-2, also known as N-acetyl-alpha-neuraminidase 2. Structurally, it forms the canonical six-blade beta-propeller observed in viral and bacterial sialidases [PMID: 15501818].
