Summaries for NEU4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NEU4 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to a family of glycohydrolytic enzymes, which remove terminal sialic acid residues from various sialo derivatives, such as glycoproteins, glycolipids, oligosaccharides, and gangliosides. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been noted for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]

GeneCards Summary for NEU4 Gene

NEU4 (Neuraminidase 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NEU4 include Galactosialidosis. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include exo-alpha-(2->3)-sialidase activity and exo-alpha-(2->8)-sialidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NEU3.
