  • Lysosomal alpha-n-acetylgalactosaminidas...

    Bacteria and animals cause lysosomal alpha-n-acetylgalactosaminidas. It is a glycoside hydrolase which is also known as nagalase. NAGA is an enzyme that is coded as a human gene that mutates. The mutations in the gene and the deficiency in alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase are caused due to Schindler disease. The activity of this enzyme converts type A blood to blood type O. Therefore, its name is A-zyme. Bacterial enzymes and A-zyme carry out r  Read More

Glycogen is the stored form of glucose present in the liver and muscles, which is usually broken down into simple glucose molecules to fuel the cells with energy.The condition occurs when the body lacks the absence of a specific enzyme, glucose-6-phosphatase that  Read More
