QuickView for Neu2 (gene)

Gene Symbol:
NEU2 Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
neuraminidase 2
SIAL2, sialidase-2, N-acetyl-alpha-neuraminidase 2, cytosolic sialidase, sialidase 2 (cytosolic sialidase)
Genomic Location:
Chr 2: 233605626-233608011
This gene belongs to a family of glycohydrolytic enzymes which remove sialic acid residues from glycoproteins and glycolipids. Expression studies in COS7 cells confirmed that this gene encodes a functional sialidase. Its cytosolic localization was demonstrated by cell fractionation experiments.
