GeneCards Summary for MAN2B2 Gene
MAN2B2 (Mannosidase Alpha Class 2B Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAN2B2 include Mannosidosis, Alpha B, Lysosomal. Among its related pathways are Glycosaminoglycan metabolism and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include carbohydrate binding and alpha-mannosidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MAN2B1.
Glycosylases are a group of enzymes that includes glucosidases, mannosidases and heparanases. There are two glucosidase subtypes, both found in the gut. They hydrolyze terminal (1,4)alpha-glucosidic linkages and (1,6)beta-glucosidic linkages, liberating alpha-glucose and beta-glucose.
