Summaries for Gangliosidosis Gm1

About this section

NIH Rare Diseases:41 Gm1 gangliosidosis is an inherited lysosomal storage disorder that progressively destroys nerve cells (neurons) in the brain and spinal cord. some researchers classify this condition into three major types based on the age at which signs and symptoms first appear. the three types include: classic infantile (type 1), juvenile (type 2), and adult onset or chronic (type 3). although the three types differ in severity, their features can overlap significantly. because of this overlap, other researchers believe that gm1 gangliosidosis represents a continuous disease spectrum instead of three distinct types. this condition is caused by mutations in the glb1 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. last updated: 4/3/2012

MalaCards based summary: Gangliosidosis Gm1, also known as gm1 gangliosidosis, is related to mucolipidosis and krabbe disease, and has symptoms including coarse facial features, long philtrum and macrotia. An important gene associated with Gangliosidosis Gm1 is GLB1 (galactosidase, beta 1), and among its related pathways are Galactose metabolism and Glycosaminoglycan degradation. The compounds Galactosylglycerol and D-Galactose have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, spinal cord and bone, and related mouse phenotypes are hearing/vestibular/ear and hematopoietic system.
