Official Full Name
iduronidase, alpha-L-
Background
This gene encodes an enzyme that hydrolyzes the terminal alpha-L-iduronic acid residues of two glycosaminoglycans, dermatan sulfate and heparan sulfate. This hydrolysis is required for the lysosomal degradation of these glycosaminoglycans. Mutations in this gene that result in enzymatic deficiency lead to the autosomal recessive disease mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I).
Synonyms
IDUA; iduronidase, alpha-L-; alpha-L-iduronidase; MPS1; Alpha L iduronidase; IDA; Iduronidase alpha L
