Its core protein is composed of three globular domains and a large extended region, for glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chains attachment, that is, chondroitin sulfates (CS, up to 90%) and keratan sulfates [5, 6, 8].
Antibodies have also been generated against the substrate that accumulates in LSD patients (Table 1), including heparan sulfate (48), keratan sulfate (49), [G.
The disease is characterised by deficient activity of N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfatase (GALNS) causing excessive lysosomal storage of glycosaminoglycans such as keratan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate.
Mucopolysaccharidosis IVA is a disease characterised by deficient activity of N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfatase (GALNS) causing excessive lysosomal storage of glycosaminoglycans such as keratan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate.
Three different types of GAGs can be distinguished on the basis of the composition of the disaccharide repeat: (a) dermatan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate (GlcA + GalNAc); (b) heparin/heparan sulfate (GlcA + GlcNAc); and (c) keratan sulfate (Gal + GlcNAc).
Data showed that keratan sulfate (KS) levels fall within a few weeks after the start of therapy.
Demonstration of a keratan sulfate containing proteoglycan in atherosclerotic aorta.
In addition, the secondary objectives are to evaluate urinary keratan sulfate (KS) levels and growth velocity, stated the company.
For example, keratan sulfate, the major stored substrate in MPS IVA, is not produced in large amounts by skin fibroblasts and hence is not stored.
