Family relationships


This entry represents a subset of the glycosyl hydrolase 35 family, including beta-galactosidase (B-gal), B-gal-1, B-gal-1-like, B-gal-8, B-gal-17. Mammalian beta-galactosidase is a lysosomal enzyme (gene GLB1) which cleaves the terminal galactose from gangliosides, glycoproteins, and glycosaminoglycans and whose deficiency is the cause of the genetic disease Gm(1) gangliosidosis (Morquio disease type B)[PMID: 7624375, PMID: 8535779].
