UniProtKB description: Catalyzes the reversible aldol cleavage of N-acetylneuraminic acid (sialic acid; Neu5Ac) to form pyruvate and N-acetylmannosamine (ManNAc) via a Schiff base intermediate (PubMed:1646603). Experiments show the true substrate is aceneuramate (linearized Neu5Ac), which forms spontaneously at alkaline pH. Linear aceneuramate can be provided by NanQ (PubMed:33895133).
