Abstract

A minor form of β-N-acetylhexosaminidase has been found in chorionic villi, in addition to the major forms A and B. This form does not hydrolyze the 4-methyl-umbelliferyl-2-acetamido-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranoside-6-sul phate substrate, is thermostable, has a higher mol mass (120 000) than A and B (100 000) and on analytical isoelectric focusing, it shows a microhetereogeneity with values ranging between 6.3 and 7.0. For these characteristics, it resembles β-N-Acetylhexosaminidase P from pregnancy serum, from which is chromatographically indistinguishable.
