Mucopolysaccharidosis IIIB (MPS IIIB; Sanfilippo syndrome type B) is characterized by profound neurological deterioration. Because a murine model of MPS IIIB disease is available, we focused on analysis of gene expression in the brain and cerebellum of 7-month-old MPS IIIB mice by pathway-specific filter microarrays designed to probe apoptotic-related,(More)
The Sanfilippo syndrome type B (mucopolysaccharidosis IIIB) is an autosomal recessive disorder due to mutations in the gene encoding NAGLU (alpha-N-acetylglucosaminidase), one of the enzymes required for the degradation of the GAG (glycosaminoglycan) heparan sulphate. No therapy exists for affected patients. We have shown previously the efficacy of(More)
