Gaucher disease (GD) is an inborn error of glycosphingolipid metabolism resulting from a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme beta-glucosidase leading to the accumulation of glucosylceramide (GC) in lysosomes of affected cells. In order to determine the effect of GC accumulation on intracellular lipid content in fibroblasts from patients with GD, we measured(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis VII (MPS VII) is an autosomal recessive, lysosomal storage disorder caused by β-glucuronidase (GUSB) deficiency, resulting in the accumulation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), in a variety of cell types. Severe, progressive skeletal pathology, termed dysostosis multiplex, is a prominent clinical feature of MPS VII. We have evaluated a(More)
Severe, progressive skeletal dysplasia is a major symptom of multiple mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) types. While a gene therapy approach initiated at birth has been shown to prevent the development of bone pathology in different animal models of MPS, the capacity to correct developed bone disease is unknown. In this study, ex vivo micro-computed tomography(More)
