Glycolipid analysis of different tissues and cerebrospinal fluid in type II Gaucher disease.


:The lipid composition or the liver, spleen, brain, cerebellum and cerebrospinal fluid of a Gaucher disease type II patient who died at the age of 5 months was examined. The glycolipid analysis demonstrated a marked increase of total amounts not only in the peripheral tissues but also in the brain cerebellum and cerebrospinal fluid, with a prevalence of glucosylceramide. A reduction in gangliosides was observed in all the analysed tissues with a relative increase of GD3 in the nervous tissue. The fatty acid composition of glucosylceramide showed a prevalence of stearic acid in the central nervous system, while in the peripheral tissues palmitic acid was prevalent. This result suggests a different origin of the glucosylceramide stored in different tissues. The generalized reduction of gangliosides and their modified distribution together with the central nervous system GD3 increment represent a new observation. These data could be useful in the effort to clarify the pathophysiological mechanism of brain damage in neuronopathic Gaucher disease.

  • The influence of sex, gestational age, birth weight, blood transfusion, and timing of the heel prick on the pancreatitis-associated protein concentration in newborn screening for cystic fibrosis.

    abstract:BACKGROUND:Pancreatitis-associated protein (PAP) is currently discussed as a marker in newborn screening (NBS) for cystic fibrosis (CF). However, it is not known if PAP concentrations are influenced by sex, gestational age, birth weight, blood transfusion or time of collection and what this would mean for NBS for CF. ...
