THE UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATE RESEARCH CENTER AND WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY IN ST. LOUIS
Grant Amount: $48,000
Grant Date: February 2015
Research Proposal: This new research grant will allow these organizations to focus on increasing the understanding of how ML2-associated mutations impact the function of the GlcNAc-1-phosphotransferase enzyme, a key enzyme involved in ML-2. The proposed studies will also provide new insight into the poorly understood role of the gamma subunit of the GlcNAc-1-phosphotransferase enzyme and how mutations in this subunit cause disease.
Status: Research ongoing
