Genomic clones of human MANB gene encoding the lysosomal enzyme, alpha-mannosidase, have been isolated, sequenced and analyzed. The human MANB gene spans approximately 22 kb and consists of 24 exons. The 5' flanking region of the gene shows a high G+C content and has two Sp1 and three AP-2 sites. Promoter analysis using deletion constructs of the 5'(More)
alpha-Mannosidosis is an autosomal recessive lysosomal-storage disorder caused by a deficiency of lysosomal alpha-mannosidase activity. This disease shows a wide range of clinical phenotypes, from a severe, infantile form (type I), which is fatal at <3-8 years of age, to a less severe, late-onset form (type II), which ultimately may involve hearing loss,(More)
OBJECTIVES Mutational analysis of the sterol 27-hydroxylase (CYP27) gene was performed on three patients from two Japanese families who had cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX) associated with parkinsonism. METHODS Clinical evaluations, brain MRI studies, and laboratory analyses were completed on the three patients. The CYP27 gene was analysed for(More)
In conditioned taste aversion (CTA) training performed on the pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis, a stimulus (the conditional stimulus, CS; e.g., sucrose) that elicits a feeding response is paired with an aversive stimulus (the unconditional stimulus, US) that elicits the whole-body withdrawal response and inhibits feeding. After CTA training and memory(More)
