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: 75 kDa.
FunctionPlays an important role in the degradation of dermatan and keratan sulfates.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in GUSB are the cause of mucopolysaccharidosis type 7 (MPS7) [MIM:253220]; also known as Sly syndrome. MPS7 is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease characterized by inability to degrade glucuronic acid-containing glycosaminoglycans. The phenotype is highly variable, ranging from severe lethal hydrops fetalis to mild forms with survival into adulthood. Most patients with the intermediate phenotype show hepatomegaly, skeletal anomalies, coarse facies, and variable degrees of mental impairment. Note=Mucopolysaccharidosis type 7 is associated with non-immune hydrops fetalis, a generalized edema of the fetus with fluid accumulation in the body cavities due to non-immune causes. Non-immune hydrops fetalis is not a diagnosis in itself but a symptom, a feature of many genetic disorders, and the end-stage of a wide variety of disorders.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 2 family.
Post-translational modificationsN-linked glycosylated with 3 to 4 oligosaccharide chains.
