GeneCards Summary for MAN2B2 Gene
MAN2B2 (Mannosidase Alpha Class 2B Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Glycosaminoglycan metabolism and Other glycan degradation. 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.
