Enzyme Commission Primary Name: glycosphingolipid deacylase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: glycosphingolipid ceramide deacylase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme catalyzes hydrolysis of gangliosides and neutral glycosphingolipids, releasing fatty acids to form the lyso-derivatives.
Does not act on sphingolipids such as ceramide. Not identical with EC 22.214.171.124 ceramidase.
