AMDHD2 (Amidohydrolase Domain Containing 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Amino sugar and nucleotide sugar metabolism and Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification. GO annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and N-acetylglucosamine-6-phosphate deacetylase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000259784.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AMDHD2 Gene
Hydrolyzes the N-glycolyl group from N-glycolylglucosamine 6-phosphate (GlcNGc-6-P) in the N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc) degradation pathway. Although human is not able to catalyze formation of Neu5Gc due to the inactive CMAHP enzyme, Neu5Gc is present in food and must be degraded.
