  • Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (Hunter disease) is an X-linked disorder due to deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme iduronate 2-sulphatase. Here we report an update of molecular studies in 31 Spanish families with Hunter disease. We found a total of 22 novel small mutations (7 reported previously by our group), and 4 large deletions or rearrangements. Particularly relevant are two mutations, one showing an alternatively spliced product although the normal splice site is conserved; the other… CONTINUE READING
