Fucosidase, alpha-L- 1, tissue

alpha-L-Fucosidase
The protein encoded by this gene is a lysosomal enzyme involved in the degradation of fucose-containing glycoproteins and glycolipids. Mutations in this gene are associated with fucosidosis (FUCA1D), which is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease. A pseudogene of this locus is present on chr 2.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009] (from NCBI)
Top mentioned proteins: ACID, HAD, N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase, lacZ, Neuraminidase
