Expression and characterization of human recombinant and alpha-N-acetylglucosaminidase.


Mucopolysaccharidosis type IIIB (MPS-IIIB, Sanfilippo type B Syndrome) is a heterosomal, recessive lysosomal storage disorder resulting from a deficiency of [alpha]-N-acetylglucosaminidase (NAGLU). To characterize this enzyme further and evaluate its potential for enzyme replacement studies we expressed the NAGLU-encoding cDNA in Chinese hamster ovary cells… (More)
