Gene information for NAGLU (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID4669
Official gene symbolNAGLU
Full nameN-acetylglucosaminidase, alpha-
Gene summaryThis gene encodes an enzyme that degrades heparan sulfate by hydrolysis of terminal N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminides. Defects in this gene are the cause of mucopolysaccharidosis type IIIB (MPS-IIIB), also known as Sanfilippo syndrome B. This disease is characterized by the lysosomal accumulation and urinary excretion of heparan sulfate. [provided by RefSeq]
