Laboratory diagnosis of lysosomal storage disorders, especially sphingomyelinase deficiency (Niemann–Pick disease type A/B) and Niemann–Pick disease type C (NPC) can be challenging. We therefore aimed to analyse the feasibility of first-step screening with specific chitotriosidase cut-off values in children ≤ 10 years of age with visceral organomegaly(More)
Homologs of the essential large tegument protein pUL36 of herpes simplex virus 1 are conserved throughout the Herpesviridae, complex with pUL37, and form part of the capsid-associated "inner" tegument. pUL36 is crucial for transport of the incoming capsid to and docking at the nuclear pore early after infection as well as for virion maturation in the(More)
Homologs of the UL25 gene product of herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) are highly conserved among the Herpesviridae. However, their exact function during viral replication is unknown. Current evidence suggests that in the alphaherpesvirus pseudorabies virus (PrV) the capsid-associated pUL25 plays a role in primary envelopment of DNA-containing mature capsids(More)
Homologs of the UL17 and UL25 gene products of herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) are conserved throughout the Herpesviridae and essential for virus replication. However, their exact function is still unknown. Although both proteins form a complex on DNA-containing C-capsids defects observed in the absence of either protein differ. Absence of pUL17 from HSV-1(More)
