Dear Glycoscientists,

I am working in the field of plant-microbe interaction.

We isolated some oligosaccharides with biological activity

influencing the plant defence system. One of the oligosaccharides

contains a fatty acid bound via a nitrogen to a aminosugar.

Now I am serching for an enzyme to cleave this amid.

Thank you for your help,
