The GM2-gangliosidoses and the elucidation of the beta-hexosaminidase system.
Urine dermatan sulphate concentrations were elevated in both of them and the gross elevations of plasma beta-hexosaminidase, arylsulphatase A and alphamannosidase were consistent with a diagnosis of ML II/III.
Beta-Hexosaminidase. We measured the concentration of beta-hexosaminidase in both the supernatant and the cells.
Naringenin has been shown, along with other flavanones such as hesperetin and ponciretin, to strongly inhibit IgE-induced beta-hexosaminidase release from RBL-2H3 cells.
The researchers also reported that brain cells in the treated mice exhibited normalized levels of the glycosaminoglycans and the lysosomal enzyme beta-hexosaminidase. With continued treatment through hematopoietic stem cell gene therapy, normalized levels persisted until the end of a five-month observation period, researchers said.
Several tests have recently been proposed, such as mitochondrial acetaldehyde adducts, beta-hexosaminidase or phosphatidylethanol (PEth), with promising results.

Several other markers with considerable potential for measuring recent alcohol intake include beta-hexosaminidase, acetaldehyde adducts and the urinary ratio of serotonin metabolites, 5-hydroxytryptophol and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid.
Current status of carbohydrate-deficient transferrin, total serum sialic acid, sialic acid index of apolipoprotein J and serum beta-hexosaminidase as markers for alcohol consumption.
