Background Information

GM2A, also named as GM2-AP and SAP-3, is the large binding pocket which can accommodate several single chain phospholipids and fatty acids. GM2A also exhibits some calcium-independent phospholipase activity. It plays a key role in the degradation of ganglioside GM2 (GM2). GM2A stimulates only the breakdown of ganglioside GM2 and glycolipid GA2 by beta-hexosaminidase A.
