Catalysis of the hydrolysis of various bonds, e.g. C-O, C-N, C-C, phosphoric anhydride bonds, etc. Hydrolase is the systematic name for any enzyme of EC class 3. Catalysis of the hydrolysis of any carbon-nitrogen bond, C-N, with the exception of peptide bonds. Catalysis of the hydrolysis of any non-peptide carbon-nitrogen bond in a linear amide. Catalysis of the hydrolysis of an acetyl group or groups from a substrate molecule. Catalysis of the reaction: N-acetyl-D-glucosamine + H2O = D-glucosamine + acetate.
