Domain

Alpha-N-acetylglucosaminidase, C-terminal (IPR024732)

Short name: NAGLU_C

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Alpha-N-acetylglucosaminidase is a lysosomal enzyme required for the stepwise degradation of heparan sulphate [PMID: 10588735]. Mutations on the alpha-N-acetylglucosaminidase (NAGLU) gene can lead to Mucopolysaccharidosis type IIIB (MPS IIIB, or Sanfilippo syndrome type B) characterised by neurological dysfunction but relatively mild somatic manifestations [PMID: 12049639]. The structure shows that the enzyme is composed of three domains. This C-terminal domain has an all alpha helical fold [PMID: 18443291].
