mucopolysaccharidosis type iiia:
Inheritance: Autosomal recessive; Prevalence: 1-9/1000000 (Europe),1-9/100000 (Worldwide)
NIH Rare Diseases:42 Mucopolysaccharidosis type iii (mps iii) is a genetic disorder that makes the body unable to break down large sugar molecules called glycosaminoglycans (gags, formerly called mucopolysaccharides). specifically, people with this condition are unable to break down a gag called heparan sulfate. affected individuals can have severe neurological symptoms, including progressive dementia, aggressive behavior, hyperactivity, seizures, deafness, loss of vision, and an inability to sleep for more than a few hours at a time. mps iii is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. there is no specific treatment for this condition. most people with mps iii live into their teenage years, and some live longer. mps iii is divided into four subtypes, known as a, b, c and d. each subtype is caused by the alteration of a different enzyme needed to completely break down heparan sulfate. the different types of mps iii have similar signs and symptoms, although type a is the most severe.to view the gard pages on the subtypes of mps iii, click on the following links: mucopolysaccharidosis type iiia mucopolysaccharidosis type iiib mucopolysaccharidosis type iiic mucopolysaccharidosis type iiid last updated: 7/7/2011
MalaCards based summary: Mucopolysaccharidosis Iii, also known as mucopolysaccharidosis type iiia, is related to mucopolysaccharidosis and mucopolysaccharidosis type iiib. An important gene associated with Mucopolysaccharidosis Iii is SGSH (N-sulfoglucosamine sulfohydrolase), and among its related pathways are MPS VI - Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome and Heparan sulfate/heparin (HS-GAG) metabolism. The compounds glycosaminoglycan and lithium have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, spinal cord and bone.
Disease Ontology:8 A mucopolysaccharidosis characterized by a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme resulting in incomplete breakdown of the heparan sulfate sugar chain.
Genetics Home Reference:21 Mucopolysaccharidosis type III (MPS III), also known as Sanfilippo syndrome, is a progressive disorder that mainly affects the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).
