Pompe disease is an inherited lysosomal storage disorder that results from a deficiency in acid α-glucosidase (GAA) activity due to mutations in the GAA gene. Pompe disease is characterized by accumulation of lysosomal glycogen primarily in heart and skeletal muscles, which leads to progressive muscle weakness. We have shown previously that the small(More)
Control of Ras activity is crucial for normal cellular behavior such as fate determination during development. Although several GTPase activating proteins (GAPs) have been shown to act as negative regulators of Ras, the mechanisms involved in regulating their activity in vivo are poorly understood. Here we report the structural requirements for Gap1(More)
