Purification and characterization of human alpha-galactosidase A expressed in insect cells using a baculovirus vector.

Fabry disease is an X-linked inborn error of glycolipid metabolism caused by deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme alpha-galactosidase A. The enzyme is responsible for the hydrolysis of terminal alpha-galactoside linkages in various glycolipids. To perform more extensive biochemical characterization and to develop new approaches for enzyme therapy, a method of… CONTINUE READING
