Sialidase-3 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the NEU3 gene.[3][4]

Function[edit]

This gene product belongs to a family of glycohydrolytic enzymes which remove sialic acid residues from glycoproteins and glycolipids. It is localized in the plasma membrane, and its activity is specific for gangliosides. It may play a role in modulating the ganglioside content of the lipid bilayer.[4]

Interactions[edit]

NEU3 has been shown to interact with Grb2.[5]
