Gaucher disease (GD), the most common lysosomal storage disorder of humans, is caused by mutations in the gene coding for the enzyme glucocerebrosidase (GCase). Clinical manifestations vary among patients with the three types of GD, and phenotypic heterogeneity occurs even among patients with identical mutations. To gain insight into why phenotypic(More)
There is increasing evidence that suggests that knockout of tumor-suppressor gene function causes developmental arrest and protraction of cellular differentiation. In the peripheral nervous system of patients with the tumor-suppressor gene disorder, von Hippel-Lindau disease, we have demonstrated developmentally arrested structural elements composed of(More)
F1FoATP synthase (ATP synthase) is a ubiquitous enzyme complex in eukaryotes. In general it is localized to the mitochondrial inner membrane and serves as the last step in the mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation of ADP to ATP, utilizing a proton gradient across the inner mitochondrial membrane built by the complexes of the electron transfer chain.(More)
