Reagents, Clinical Chemistry, Enzyme, Beta-N-Acetylhexosaminidase, Isoenzyme
Definition : Clinical chemistry reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative chemical analyses of body fluids (typically serum) to determine the levels of the isoenzymes of beta-N-acetylhexosaminidase (i.e., hexosaminidase A and B). A deficiency of the enzyme hexosaminidase A is the cause of Tay-Sachs disease, a rare, genetically transmitted metabolic disease characterized by a progressive destruction of nerve cells in the first years of life.
