The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 75 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 63 kDa).
Involvement in disease
Defects in GNS are the cause of mucopolysaccharidosis type 3D (MPS3D) [MIM:252940]; also known as Sanfilippo D syndrome. MPS3D is a form of mucopolysaccharidosis type 3, an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease due to impaired degradation of heparan sulfate. MPS3 is characterized by severe central nervous system degeneration, but only mild somatic disease. Onset of clinical features usually occurs between 2 and 6 years; severe neurologic degeneration occurs in most patients between 6 and 10 years of age, and death occurs typically during the second or third decade of life.
Belongs to the sulfatase family.
The form A (78 kDa) is processed by internal peptidase cleavage to a 32 kDa N-terminal species (form B) and a 48 kDa C-terminal species. The conversion to 3-oxoalanine (also known as C-formylglycine, FGly), of a serine or cysteine residue in prokaryotes and of a cysteine residue in eukaryotes, is critical for catalytic activity.
