The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Cleaves the GlcNAc-Asn bond which joins oligosaccharides to the peptide of asparagine-linked glycoproteins.
Involvement in disease
Defects in AGA are the cause of aspartylglucosaminuria (AGU) [MIM:208400]. AGU is an inborn lysosomal storage disease. Clinical features of AGU include mild to severe mental retardation manifesting from the age of 2, coarse facial features and mild connective tissue abnormalities. This recessively inherited disease is overrepresented in the Finnish population.
