Endoglycosidase H (Endo H) is a recombinant glycosidase cloned from Streptomyces plicatus and overexpressed in E. coli. Endo H cleaves the chitobiose core of high mannose and a limited number of hybrid oligosaccharides from N-linked glycoproteins. It does not cleave complex glycans. Enzymatic cleavage is between the two N-acetylglucosamine residues in the diacetylchitobiose core of the oligosaccharide, leaving one N-acetylglucosamine residue on the asparagine. This is in contrast to PNGase F, which cleaves all asparagine-linked oligosaccharides.
