Chit1 protein, human

Known as: Plasma Methylumbelliferyl Tetra-N-Acetylchitotetraoside Hydrolase, Chitotriosidase, Methylumbelliferyl-Tetra-N-Acetylchitotetraoside Hydrolase 
Chitotriosidase-1 (466 aa, ~52 kDa) is encoded by the human CHIT1 gene. This protein is involved in the degradation of chitins.
