Hyaluronidase is a polysaccharidase with a specificity for endo-N-acetylhexosaminic bonds

between 2-acetoamido-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucose and D-glucuronate. These bonds are common in hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate A and C. Because these substances are found in high concentrations in the ground substance of virtually all connective tissues, hyaluronidase is often used for the dissociation of tissues, usually in combination with a crude protease such as collagenase.*
