The first step of the degradation of p-nitrophenyl-6-sulfo-2-acetamido-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucopyranoside and of keratan sulfate-derived oligosaccharides bearing N-acetylglucosamine-6-sulfate residues at the nonreducing end was considered to be accomplished by the action of a specific sulfatase (Kresse, H., Paschke, E., von Figura, K., Gilberg, W., and Fuchs W. (1980) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U. S. A. 77, 6822-6826). In purification from human placenta, however, this activity co-chromatographed with… CONTINUE READING
