Summaries for HYAL2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HYAL2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a weak acid-active hyaluronidase. The encoded protein is similar in structure to other more active hyaluronidases. Hyaluronidases degrade hyaluronan, one of the major glycosaminoglycans of the extracellular matrix. Hyaluronan and fragments of hyaluronan are thought to be involved in cell proliferation, migration and differentiation. Although it was previously thought to be a lysosomal hyaluronidase that is active at a pH below 4, the encoded protein is likely a GPI-anchored cell surface protein. This hyaluronidase serves as a receptor for the oncogenic virus Jaagsiekte sheep retrovirus. The gene is one of several related genes in a region of chromosome 3p21.3 associated with tumor suppression. This gene encodes two alternatively spliced transcript variants which differ only in the 5' UTR.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]

GeneCards Summary for HYAL2 Gene

HYAL2 (Hyaluronoglucosaminidase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HYAL2 include mucopolysaccharidosis type ix. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Glycosaminoglycan metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include enzyme binding and virus receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is HYAL3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HYAL2 Gene

  • Hydrolyzes high molecular weight hyaluronic acid to produce an intermediate-sized product which is further hydrolyzed by sperm hyaluronidase to give small oligosaccharides. Displays very low levels of activity. Associates with and negatively regulates MST1R.
