Entrez Gene summary for HEXB Gene:
Hexosaminidase B is the beta subunit of the lysosomal enzyme beta-hexosaminidase that, together with the cofactor
GM2 activator protein, catalyzes the degradation of the ganglioside GM2, and other molecules containing terminal
N-acetyl hexosamines. Beta-hexosaminidase is composed of two subunits, alpha and beta, which are encoded by
separate genes. Both beta-hexosaminidase alpha and beta subunits are members of family 20 of glycosyl hydrolases.
Mutations in the alpha or beta subunit genes lead to an accumulation of GM2 ganglioside in neurons and
neurodegenerative disorders termed the GM2 gangliosidoses. Beta subunit gene mutations lead to Sandhoff disease
(GM2-gangliosidosis type II). (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008)

GeneCards Summary for HEXB Gene:
HEXB (hexosaminidase B (beta polypeptide)) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with HEXB include sandhoff disease, and sandhoff disease, infantile, juvenile, and adult forms. GO annotations related to this gene include beta-N-acetylhexosaminidase activity and protein homodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is HEXA.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: HEXB_HUMAN, P07686
Function: Responsible for the degradation of GM2 gangliosides, and a variety of other molecules containing
terminal N-acetyl hexosamines, in the brain and other tissues
