Discovery and characterization of a novel extremely acidic bacterial N-glycanase with combined advantages of PNGase F and A.

ABSTRACT: Peptide-N4-(N-acetyl-?-glucosaminyl) asparagine amidases [PNGases (peptide N-glycosidases), N-glycanases, EC] are essential tools in the release of N-glycans from glycoproteins. We hereby report the discovery and characterization of a novel bacterial N-glycanase from Terriglobus roseus with an extremely low pH optimum of 2.6, and annotated it therefore as PNGase H+. The gene of PNGase H+ was cloned and the recombinant protein was successfully expressed in Escherichia coli. The recombinant PNGase H+ could liberate high mannose-, hybrid- and complex-type N-glycans including core ?1,3-fucosylated oligosaccharides from both glycoproteins and glycopeptides. In addition, PNGase H+ exhibited better release efficiency over N-glycans without core ?1,3-fucose compared with PNGase A. The facile expression, non-glycosylated nature, unusual pH optimum and broad substrate specificity of this novel type of N-glycanase makes recombinant PNGase H+ a versatile tool in N-glycan analysis.
