Gene: Hexa (hexosaminidase A) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Hexa
Name: hexosaminidase A
Description: Exhibits beta-N-acetylhexosaminidase activity. Involved in several processes, including SMAD protein signal transduction; adult walking behavior; and nervous system development. Localizes to the lysosome and membrane. Used to study Tay-Sachs disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Tay-Sachs disease. Is expressed in brain; mandible; and maxilla. Orthologous to human HEXA (hexosaminidase subunit alpha).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: beta-hexosaminidase subunit alpha; beta-N-acetylhexosaminidase subunit alpha; Hex-1; hexosaminidase subunit A; N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase subunit alpha
