Summaries for GUSB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GUSB Gene

  • This gene encodes a hydrolase that degrades glycosaminoglycans, including heparan sulfate, dermatan sulfate, and chondroitin-4,6-sulfate. The enzyme forms a homotetramer that is localized to the lysosome. Mutations in this gene result in mucopolysaccharidosis type VII. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. There are many pseudogenes of this locus in the human genome.[provided by RefSeq, May 2014]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 7 (MPS7) [MIM:253220]: An autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease characterized by inability to degrade glucuronic acid-containing glycosaminoglycans. The phenotype is highly variable, ranging from severe lethal hydrops fetalis to mild forms with survival into adulthood. Most patients with the intermediate phenotype show hepatomegaly, skeletal anomalies, coarse facies, and variable degrees of mental impairment. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12522561, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12859417, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1702266, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7573038, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7633414, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7680524, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8089138, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8111412, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8111413, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8644704, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8707294, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9099834, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9490302}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Mucopolysaccharidosis type 7 is associated with non-immune hydrops fetalis, a generalized edema of the fetus with fluid accumulation in the body cavities due to non-immune causes. Non-immune hydrops fetalis is not a diagnosis in itself but a symptom, a feature of many genetic disorders, and the end-stage of a wide variety of disorders.
