Molecular Basis of Lysosomal Storage Disorders contains the proceedings of the 1983 Conference on the Molecular Basis of Lysosomal Storage Disorders, held at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. The papers focus on the molecular biology of, and therapeutic approaches to, lysosomal storage disorders, such as mucopolysaccharidoses, sphingolipidoses, and Gaucher disease.
Organized into six sections comprised of 29 chapters, this book begins with an overview of enzymes, activator proteins, and stabilizers that underlie lysosomal storage disorders. It then discusses some developments in enzyme purification, receptors for glycoprotein enzymes, factors that control endocytosis, and the intracellular fate of lysosomal hydrolases. Some chapters explain the enzyme biosynthesis, bone marrow transplantation, and enzyme replacement, along with cell hybridization, chromosome localization, phenotype discrimination, and cloning of genes for human lysosomal enzymes.
This book is helpful to biochemists, physiologists, pathologists, geneticists, clinical investigators, and practicing physicians concerned with the study, care, and treatment of patients with hereditary metabolic disorders, as well as undergraduate and graduate level students involved in research in this discipline.
