Two newly identified splice site mutations (IVS1 -13T-->G and IVS10 +1GT-->CT) were found in a patient with adult onset of the autosomal recessive disorder glycogen storage disease type II (GSDII). The IVS1 -13T-->G transversion in the acceptor splice site was found on one allele in over two thirds of adult onset GSDII patients studied (28/41), but was not(More)
Pompe disease is a lethal cardioskeletal myopathy in infants and results from genetic deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA). Genetic replacement of the cDNA for human GAA (hGAA) is one potential therapeutic approach. Three months after a single intramuscular injection of 10(8) plaque-forming units (PFU) of E1-deleted adenovirus(More)
Genomic DNA clones of human acid alpha glucosidase (GAA) and thymidine kinase (TK1) were used to map the exact location and order of these genes on human chromosome 17. Both genes were localized to the 17825-gter band (17825.2–825.3), with GAA distal to TK1. They were also shown to be, respectively, distal and proximal to an anonymous cosmid (cK17.71)(More)
To examine the role of complement components as regulators of the expression of endothelial adhesive molecules in response to immune complexes (ICs), we determined whether ICs stimulate both endothelial adhesiveness for leukocytes and expression of E-selectin and intercellular and vascular cell adhesion molecules 1 (ICAM-1 and VCAM-1). We found that ICs(More)
We identified the presumably rare event of de novo mutation in an autosomal recessive disorder, glycogen storage disease type II (GSDII). GSDII results from inherited deficiency of acid alpha-glucosidase (acid maltase) and both the expressed and structural gene (designated GAA) have been isolated. The mutation was a deletion of 13 nt of coding sequence(More)
Acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA) cleaves the alpha1-4 and alpha1-6 glycosidic linkages of glycogen and related alpha-glucosyl substrates within lysosomes. Its deficiency results in glycogen storage disease type II (GSDII) variants including Pompe disease. To gain insight into the tissue patterns of involvement by glycogen storage in GSDII, GAA mRNA expression(More)
We have identified the molecular basis of the GAA*4 allozyme as a G to A transition at nt2065 which predicts the substitution of glutamic acid by lysine at codon 689 (E689K). The conclusion that this change represents the molecular basis of the GAA*4 allozyme is based on 1) presence of the G2065A in homozygosity in a known GAA*4 homozygote, 2) transient(More)
BACKGROUND Current treatment regimens for pulmonary tuberculosis require at least 6 months of therapy. Immune adjuvant therapy with recombinant interferon-gamma1b (rIFN-gammab) may reduce pulmonary inflammation and reduce the period of infectivity by promoting earlier sputum clearance. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We performed a randomized, controlled(More)
