These data are consistent with a severe derangement in the rate of proteoglycan production and deposition resulting from mutations in the diastrophic dysplasia sulfate transporter gene.
Although mutations in the diastrophic dysplasia sulfate transporter gene are expected to result in complex and multiple chemical abnormalities of the cartilage matrix, the immunohistochemical distribution of biglycan and decorin discloses a major structural change in the overall organization of epiphyseal cartilage matrix, with important implications for the pathogenesis of the abnormal growth and modeling of endochondrally formed bones in ACG-IB.
