Lysosomal hydrolases of the epidermis. I. Glycosidases.

Mier PD, van den Hurk JJ. "Lysosomal hydrolases of the epidermis. I. Glycosidases." Br. J. Dermatol.. 1975;93(1):1-10.


Seven distinct glycosidases (EC 3.2) have been characterized in guinea-pig epidermis. Their properties indicate them to be of lysosomal origin. The 'profile' of the epidermal glycosidases is significantly different from that reported for whole skin, the activities of beta-galactosidase and beta-acetylglucosaminidase being very high and those of the remaining enzymes relatively low in epidermis.
