Native Escherichia coli N-Acetylneuraminic Acid Aldolase

Cat No.
NATE-0490
Description
In enzymology, a N-acetylneuraminate lyase (EC 4.1.3.3) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction:N-acetylneuraminate↔ N-acetyl-D-mannosamine + pyruvate. Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, N-acetylneuraminate, and two products, N-acetyl-D-mannosamine and pyruvate. This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the oxo-acid-lyases, which cleave carbon-carbon bonds. This enzyme participates in aminosugars metabolism.
