Galactosylceramidase Summary

Description: An enzyme that hydrolyzes galactose from ceramide monohexosides. Deficiency of this enzyme may cause globoid cell leukodystrophy (LEUKODYSTROPHY, GLOBOID CELL). EC 3.2.1.46.

Also Known As: Galactosylceramide Galactosidase; Galactosylceramide beta-Galactosidase; Galactosylcerebroside beta-Galactosidase; Galactosidase, Galactosylceramide; beta-Galactosidase, Galactosylceramide Show All >>
