Interrelationship of hexosaminidases A and B: conformation of the common and the unique subunit theory.


Human kidney hexosaminidase A (beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase; 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucoside acetamidodeoxyglucohydrolase; EC is a heteropolymer of two immunologically distinct subunits designated as alpha and beta. Hexosaminidase B, however, is a homopolymer comprised entirely of beta subunits. When human kidney hexosaminidase A was… (More)
