Bone marrow transplantation was performed in a patient with alpha-mannosidosis. To our knowledge this is the first time such treatment has been attempted. The patient died 18 weeks after successful grafting and specimens of tissues were obtained at necropsy. Alpha-mannosidase activity in spleen and liver was just below normal (spleen 102 mumol/g/hour,(More)
Up to the end of 1978 the Willink Biochemical Genetics Unit had screened 506821 babies for metabolic abnormalities over 10 years--98-99% of the children born in the region. Sixty-nine cases of phenylketonuria (PKU), 42 cases of histidinaemia, and six cases of homocystinuria were detected. As well as treating affected children, the staff of the unit have(More)
Human serum amyloid P component crystallizes from sodium acetate buffer (pH 5.5) in the presence of calcium and polyethylene glycol 6000, at 4 degrees C. The space group is P2(1) and the cell parameters are a = 69.0 A (1 A = 0.1 nm), b = 99.3 A, c = 96.8 A, beta = 96.1. Density considerations supported by neutron scattering and gel filtration experiments(More)
Maternal phenylketonuria (PKU) has adverse effects on the offspring including microcephaly, mental retardation, congenital heart disease, and intrauterine growth retardation. Maternal non-PKU mild hyperphenylalaninaemia (MHP) is believed to be benign, but whether there may be long-term consequences to offspring is unclear. In an international survey we have(More)
X-linked liver glycogenosis (XLG) is probably the most frequent glycogen-storage disease. XLG can be divided into two subtypes: XLG I, with a deficiency in phosphorylase kinase (PHK) activity in peripheral blood cells and liver; and XLG II, with normal in vitro PHK activity in peripheral blood cells and with variable activity in liver. Both types of XLG are(More)
