1now Summary


Human lysosomal beta-hexosaminidase isoform B in complex with (2R,3R,4S,5R)-2-Acetamido-3,4-Dihydroxy-5-Hydroxymethyl-Piperidinium Chloride (GalNAc-isofagomine)

The structure was published by Mark, B.L., Mahuran, D.J., Cherney, M.M., Zhao, D., Knapp, S., and James, M.N.G., in 2003 in a paper entitled "Crystal structure of Human beta-hexosaminidase B: Understanding the molecular basis of Sandhoff and Tay-Sachs disease" (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.2 Å and deposited in 2003.

The experimental data on which the structure is based was also deposited.
