MetaCyc Reaction: 3.5.1.69

Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion Type Simple Reactions Chemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By Substrate Small-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: 3.5.1.69

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Mass balance status: Undetermined; a substrate lacks a chemical formula

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 3.5.1.23 ceramidase.
