Official Full Name
aspartoacylase
Background
This gene encodes an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of N-acetyl_L-aspartic acid (NAA) to aspartate and acetate.;NAA is abundant in the brain where hydrolysis by aspartoacylase is thought to help maintain white matter. This protein;is an NAA scavenger in other tissues. Mutations in this gene cause Canavan disease. Alternatively spliced transcript;variants have been found for this gene.
