Grant Amount: $60,000
Grant Date: March 2016
Research Proposal: The current proposal will continue to investigate the molecular basis of ML disease and address the question of how GlcNAc-1-phosphotransferase recognizes 60 different lysosomal acid hydrolases while avoiding acting on the many other glycoproteins synthesized by the cell. This information may point to new ways to treat ML disease that are tailored for specific tissues.
Status: Research ongoing
