The clinical value of urinary N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase levels in childhood age group. Kavukçu S1, Soylu A, Türkmen M.
N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (NAG), one of the glycolytic enzymes, is distributed in various tissue cells. Among them, the lysosome in the renal proximal tubular cells contains high amount of NAG. NAG is secreted in urine when kidney is damaged. Urinary NAG, therefore, is used as a marker which can detect the extent of the renal damage. Electrophoresis divides urinary NAG into three isozymes, pre A, A, and B forms.

N-Acetyl- beta -D-glucosaminidase (abbreviated to as NAGase) is an enzyme in lysosome which is contained abundantly in the renal tubular epithelia and is related to the degradation of mucopolysaccharides and glycoproteins. It is recognized that the NAGase in urine increases in various cases of renal diseases or after an operation of the kidney and the NAGase in urine as well as serum increases in case of diabetes.
