Background Information

GALNS(N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfatase) is also named as chondroitinase and belongs to the sulfatase family. It is one of sulfatases required to degrade glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), keratan sulfate (KS) and chondroitin-6-sulfate (C6S) and the enzyme is a dimer derived from two 60 kDa polypeptides, each of which is processed to 40 kDa and 15 kDa polypeptide subunits linked by disulfide bonds(PMID:15241807). The deduced 522-residue protein is composed of a 26-amino acid N-terminal signal peptide and a mature polypeptide of 496 amino acid residues, including 2 potential asparagine-linked glycosylation sites(PMID:1755850). Defects in GALNS are the cause of mucopolysaccharidosis type 4A (MPS4A), also known as Morquio A syndrome.
