The Sanfilippo syndrome type C [mucopolysaccharidosis IIIC (MPS IIIC)] is caused by mutations in the HGSNAT gene, encoding an enzyme involved in heparan sulphate degradation. We report the first molecular study on several Spanish Sanfilippo syndrome type C patients. Seven Spanish patients, one Argentinean and three Moroccan patients were analysed. All(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis type III (Sanfilippo syndrome) is a group of autosomal recessive disorders caused by a deficiency in one of the four enzymes involved in the lysosomal degradation of heparan sulfate. Genistein supplementation has been proposed as a potential therapy for the reduction of substrates in patients with these disorders. The aim of this study(More)
BACKGROUND Mucopolysaccharidosis type III (MPS III), or Sanfilippo syndrome, is caused by a deficiency in one of the four enzymes involved in the lysosomal degradation of heparan sulphate. Four MPS III types have been recognized, characterized by a large phenotypic heterogeneity. This is the first Spanish study describing the natural history of Sanfilippo(More)
Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome is a very rare but well-characterized genetic disorder that causes premature ageing. Clinical features affect growth, skeleton, body fat, skin, hair and the cardiovascular system. It is caused by mutations in LMNA gene, the most frequent being p.Gly608Gly (c.1824C > T) in exon 11. Here we present a four-year-old HGPS(More)
Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a group of lysosomal storage disorders caused by deficiencies of lysosomal enzymes catalyzing degradation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Previously, we reported a secondary plasma coenzyme Q10 (CoQ) deficiency in MPS patients. For this study, nine MPS patients were recruited in the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu (HSJD, Barcelona)(More)
UNLABELLED The effect of nicotine on membrane alterations and fluidity changes in very young models remains unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of nicotine on total ATPase, H(2)O(2) and calcium in brain of young rats in the presence of oligoelements. Male Wistar rats (weight 80 g) received intraperitoneally either a single dose or(More)
