Description

Non-lysosomal glucosylceramidase, also known as beta-glucosidase 2 (GBA2) is an enzyme involved in an alternative catabolic pathway of glucosylceramide [PMID: 17105727]. GBA2, has been characterised as a bile acid beta-glucosidase [PMID: 11489889]. It is unrelated to other known glucosidases, but it has homologues among bacteria and archaea [PMID: 20427274].
