RNA expression pattern

Alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the NAGA gene.[1]

NAGA encodes the lysosomal enzyme alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase, which cleaves alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminyl moieties from glycoconjugates. Mutations in NAGA have been identified as the cause of Schindler disease types I and II (type II also known as Kanzaki disease).[1]
