A family with different clinical forms of acid maltase deficiency (glycogenosis type II): biochemical and genetic studies

M C LoonenJ M Tager


In the same family, the generalized or infantile form of acid maltase deficiency (glycogenosis type II, Pompe disease) and the muscular or adult-onset form affected different individuals. Autosomal-recessive inheritance for the two clinical forms was demonstrated in this family by assay of acid alpha-glucosidase in muscle, lymphocytes, cultured fibroblasts, and urine of asymptomatic relatives. Current biochemical techniques do not discriminate between persons heterozygous for the generalized form and those heterozygous for the muscular form. To explain the coexistence of both forms in the same family, the infant with the generalized form or her grandfather with the muscular form must have been a genetic compound of different mutant alleles for acid alpha-glucosidase.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
