Accepted name: N,N′-diacetylchitobiose non-reducing end deacetylase
Reaction: N,N′-diacetylchitobiose + H2O = β-D-glucosaminyl-(1→4)-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine + acetate
Other name(s): diacetylchitobiose deacetylase (ambiguous); cda (gene name)
Systematic name: N,N′-diacetylchitobiose non-reducing end acetylhydrolase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the archaeons Thermococcus kodakarensis and Pyrococcus horikoshii, deacetylates the non-reducing residue of N,N′-diacetylchitobiose, the end product of the archaeal chitinase, to produce β-D-glucosaminyl-(1→4)-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. This is in contrast to EC, chitin disaccharide deacetylase, which deacetylates N,N′-diacetylchitobiose at the reducing residue to produce N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminyl-(1→4)-D-glucosamine.
