Lysosomal glycogen storage disease with normal acid maltase (Danon) is caused by primary lysosome-associated membrane protein-2 (LAMP-2) deficiency. Typically, the disease begins after the first decade; however, two infantile patients had similar histologic features. The infantile disorder is distinct from Danon disease, because, in both infants, LAMP-2(More)
Specific neuron ablation with laser microbeam has been used in behavioral analysis of Caenorhabditis elegans. However, this method is hard to acquire many ablated worms, and is unable to compare behavioral changes just before and after ablation. Here, we developed an ablation method by using genetically encoded photosensitizer protein, KillerRed, which(More)
In a male infant who had cardiomyopathy, generalized muscle weakness and increased serum creatine kinase levels, his muscle biopsy revealed myopathic changes with tiny intracytoplasmic vacuoles containing PAS-positive material and high acid phosphatase activity, but had normal acid maltase activity biochemically. These findings were consistent with those(More)
