Saposin C protects glucocerebrosidase against α-synuclein inhibition.


Mutations in GBA1, the gene for glucocerebrosidase (GCase), are genetic risk factors for Parkinson disease (PD). α-Synuclein (α-Syn), a protein implicated in PD, interacts with GCase and efficiently inhibits enzyme activity. GCase deficiency causes the lysosomal storage disorder Gaucher disease (GD). We show that saposin C (Sap C), a protein vital for GCase… (More)
