(redirected from a-fucosidase)

α-fu·co·si·dase

(fyū-kōs'i-dās),
An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of an an α-l-fucoside, producing an alcohol and l-fucose; a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme will result in fucosidosis.

Widespread angiokeratomas also occur in patients with several additional enzyme deficiencies, which include a-fucosidase (fucosidosis), neuraminidase (sialodosis), aspartylglucosaminidase (aspartylglucosaminuria), AY-mannosidase (AY- mannosidosis), a-N-acetylgalactosaminidase (Kanski disease), and AY-galactosidase (adult- onset GM1 gangliosidosis).
