Tetrameric lysosomal enzyme beta-glucuronidase (GUSB tetramer) hydrolyses glucuronate from the HA tetrasaccharide (HA(2)) resulting in the single sugars glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine. Defects in beta-glucuronidase (GUSB; MIM:611499) cause mucopolysaccharidosis type VII (MPS VII, Sly syndrome, beta-glucuronidase deficiency; MIM:253220), an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease. Mutations causing severe forms of the disease are R356* (Shipley et al. 1993), A354V and R611W (Wu & Sly 1993), S52F (Vervoot et al. 1997) and R216W (Vervoort et al. 1996).
