IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphodiester α-N-acetylglucosaminidase
Other names:
2-acetamido-2-deoxy-α-D-glucose 1-phosphodiester acetamidodeoxyglucohydrolase
α-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine-1-phosphodiester N-acetylglucosaminidase
α-N-acetylglucosaminyl phosphodiesterase
lysosomal α-N-acetylglucosaminidase
phosphodiester glycosidase
Systematic name:
glycoprotein-N-acetyl-D-glucosaminyl-phospho-D-mannose N-acetyl-D-glucosaminylphosphohydrolase



Acts on a variety of compounds in which N-acetyl-D-glucosamine is α-linked to a phosphate group, including the biosynthetic intermediates of the high mannose oligosaccharide components of some lysosomal enzymes and the products of EC UDP-N-acetylglucosamine—lysosomal-enzyme N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase.
