Identification of chitotriosidase isoforms in plasma of Gaucher disease patients by two dimensional gel electrophoresis.

Abstract

Chitotriosidase protein (ChT) is the most important biochemical marker described for Gaucher disease (GD). ChT activity is increased several hundred-fold in plasma of GD patients and shows a strong positive correlation with the severity of the disease. However, a recessively inherited enzyme deficiency, with an incidence of about 6% in the Caucasian… (More)
