β-glucuronidase

/β-glu·cu·ron·i·dase/ (gloo″ku-ron´ĭ-dās) an enzyme that attacks terminal glycosidic linkages in natural and synthetic glucuronides and that has been implicated in estrogen metabolism and cell division; it occurs in the spleen, liver, and endocrine glands; deficiency results in Sly's syndrome.
