Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notesELISA: 1/20000.
    IHC-P: 1/50 - 1/100. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval via the pressure cooker method, boiling for 2-3 min, before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
    WB: 1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 63 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 63 kDa).

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionResponsible for the degradation of GM2 gangliosides, and a variety of other molecules containing terminal N-acetyl hexosamines, in the brain and other tissues.
    • Involvement in diseaseDefects in HEXB are the cause of GM2-gangliosidosis type 2 (GM2G2) [MIM:268800]; also known as Sandhoff disease. GM2-gangliosidosis is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease marked by the accumulation of GM2 gangliosides in the neuronal cells. GM2G2 is clinically indistinguishable from GM2-gangliosidosis type 1, presenting startle reactions, early blindness, progressive motor and mental deterioration, macrocephaly and cherry-red spots on the macula.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 20 family.
    • Post-translational
      N-linked glycans at Asn-142 and Asn-190 consist of Man(3)-GlcNAc(2) and Man(5 to 7)-GlcNAc(2), respectively.
      The beta-A and beta-B chains are produced by proteolytic processing of the precursor beta chain.
