Accepted name: glycosphingolipid deacylase
Reaction: Hydrolysis of gangliosides and neutral glycosphingolipids, releasing fatty acids to form the lyso-derivatives
Other name(s): glycosphingolipid ceramide deacylase
Systematic name: glycosphingolipid amidohydrolase
Comments: Does not act on sphingolipids such as ceramide. Not identical with EC ceramidase.
