Most of them are endopeptidases, preferentially cleaving peptide bonds within a polypeptide chain. Nat Cell Biol 2004; 6 3 :252-259. . Atp6i-deficient mice exhibit severe osteopetrosis due to loss of osteoclast-mediated extracellular acidification. Other membrane associated not always integral proteins contribute both to enzymatic degradative functions example: glucocerebrosidase or to vesicle trafficking example: Rab proteins. Biol Chem 2001; 382 5 :717-725.
Deep mental retardation, dementia, loss of deambulation and of acquired speech characterise the further course, which spans over several decades. The group of lysosomal storage disorders is usually caused by the lack of a hydrolase, its activator or a transporter causing accumulation of specific substrates in the lysosomes for each disorder type. Clearly they are more than structural components, simply involved in maintaining the stability and integrity of the lysosomal limiting membrane. Characterization of the membrane proteins of rat liver lysosomes. Am J Hum Genet 2002; 70:537-42. Degradation of N-linked and O-linked glycans. Variable clinical presentation of lysosomal beta-mannosidosis in patients with null mutations.
This transporter is not yet coupled to a genetic disease. . Tanaka Y, Guhde G, Suter A et al. J Biol Chem 1996; 271 43 :27188. A general lack of lysosomal acidification probably leads to early embryonic lethality. . .

Myeloid Adam10 deficiency did not affect plaque size, but it increased plaque collagen content. J Cell Biol 2003; 160 5 :699-708. Functions in the degradation of neuropeptides55 and a role in antigen processing56 have been proposed. Its relation to the defect in cholesterol recycling needs further investigation, but, noteworthy, also Patched, as a ligand for the Sonic Hedgehog, is involved in cholesterol metabolism. J Biol Chem 2000; 275:22220-28.
The group can be divided into the following four subgroups: a. The position is available as of 01. At least two other ClC channels ClC-3 and 6 are specifically targeted to the lysosomes. In addition, a number of so-called variant forms exist, leading to a complicated nomenclature. Events of neural and retinal degeneration observed in knock-out mice for ClC-3 might help to elucidate new human lysosomal diseases.

Defects in Glycan Degradation The most common group of lysosomal storage disorders, represented by about 30 diseases, results from defects of glycan degradation. Cathepsin L deficiency as molecular defect of furless: Hyperproliferation of keratinocytes and pertubation of hair follicle cycling. Proteolytic cleavage represents a unique and irreversible posttranslational event regulating the function and half-life of many intracellular and extracellular proteins. Syntaxin 16 and syntaxin 5 are required for efficient retrograde transport of several exogenous and endogenous cargo proteins. If these proteins are directly involved in lysosomal release of vitamin B 12 has yet to be determined. Usually, however, the signal peptide 52 Lysosomes Figure 2. Reaction 1-6: breakdown from the nonreducing end by the exoglycosidases; 1 α-sialidase, requiring cathepsin A 2 β-galactosidase, requiring cathepsin A, 3 β-hexosaminidase, 4 α-mannosidase, 5 α 1-6 mannosidase and 6 β-mannosidase.
