GeneCards Summary for CTBS Gene
CTBS (Chitobiase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CTBS include Phonagnosia and Focal Hand Dystonia. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity, hydrolyzing O-glycosyl compounds and chitinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CHIA.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CTBS Gene
Involved in the degradation of asparagine-linked glycoproteins. Hydrolyze of N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosamine (1-4)N-acetylglucosamine chitobiose core from the reducing end of the bond, it requires prior cleavage by glycosylasparaginase.
