MPS IIIB (Sanfilippo syndrome B, Mucopolysaccharidosis IIIB, MIM:252920) is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder due to loss of function of alpha-N-acetylglucosaminidase (NAGLU; MIM:609701), normally involved in the hydrolysis of terminal non-reducing N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in heparan and heparan sulfate (HS). Mutations that cause severe forms of MPSIIIB are R674C or H (Zhao et al. 1998), R297X (Yogalingam & Hopwood 2001, Zhao et al. 1998) and R626X (Beesley et al 2004).
