Accepted name: poly(ADP-ribose) glycohydrolase
Reaction: hydrolyses poly(ADP-D-ribose) at glycosidic (1′′-2′) linkage of ribose-ribose bond to produce free ADP-D-ribose
Glossary: ADP-D-ribose = adenosine 5′-(5-deoxy-D-ribofuranos-5-yl diphosphate)
Comments: Specific to (1′′-2′) linkage of ribose-ribose bond of poly(ADP-D-ribose).
