PTMs - P07686 As Substrate
Responsible for the degradation of GM2 gangliosides, and a variety of other molecules containing terminal N-acetyl hexosamines, in the brain and other tissues.
N-linked glycans at Asn-142 and Asn-190 consist of Man(3)-GlcNAc(2) and Man(5 to 7)-GlcNAc(2), respectively.
The beta-A and beta-B chains are produced by proteolytic processing of the precursor beta chain.
There are 3 forms of beta-hexosaminidase: hexosaminidase A is a trimer composed of one subunit alpha, one subunit beta chain A and one subunit beta chain B; hexosaminidase B is a tetramer of two subunit beta chains A and two subunit beta chains B; hexosaminidase S is a homodimer of two alpha subunits. The two beta chains are derived from the cleavage of the beta subunit.
Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 20 family.
