MBP 175.0 Mepsevii (vestronidase alfa-vjbk)
Mepsevii (vestronidase alfa-vjbk) is a recombinant human beta-glucuronidase (GUS), which provides exogenous GUS enzyme for uptake into cellular lysosomes. Mannose-6-phosphate (M6P) residues on the oligosaccharide chains allow binding of the enzyme to cell surface receptors, leading to cellular uptake of the enzyme, targeting to lysosomes and subsequent catabolism of accumulated glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in affected tissues.
