Lysosomal degradation of endocytosed proteins depends on the chloride transport protein ClC-7.


Mutations in either ClC-7, a late endosomal/lysosomal member of the CLC family of chloride channels and transporters, or in its beta-subunit Ostm1 cause osteopetrosis and lysosomal storage disease in mice and humans. The severe phenotype of mice globally deleted for ClC-7 or Ostm1 and the absence of storage material in cultured cells hampered investigations… (More)
