About this section


MedlinePlus:34 Tay-sachs disease is a rare, inherited disorder. it causes too much of a fatty substance to build up in the brain. this buildup destroys nerve cells, causing mental and physical problems. infants with tay-sachs disease appear to develop normally for the first few months of life. then mental and physical abilities decline. the child becomes blind, deaf, and unable to swallow. muscles begin to waste away and paralysis sets in. even with the best of care, children with tay-sachs disease usually die by age 4. the cause is a gene mutation which is most common in eastern european ashkenazi jews. to get the disease, both parents must have the gene. if they do, there is a 25% chance of the child having the disease. a blood test and prenatal tests can check for the gene or the disease. there is no cure. medicines and good nutrition can help some symptoms. some children need feeding tubes. nih: national institute of neurological disorders and stroke

MalaCards based summary: Tay-Sachs Disease, also known as hexosaminidase a deficiency, is related to gangliosidosis and motor neuron disease, and has symptoms including macrocephaly, hearing impairment and visual impairment. An important gene associated with Tay-Sachs Disease is HEXA (hexosaminidase A (alpha polypeptide)), and among its related pathways are Amino sugar and nucleotide sugar metabolism and Keratan sulfate/keratin metabolism. The compounds g(m2) ganglioside and Ganglioside GA2 (d18:1/12:0) have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and spinal cord, and related mouse phenotypes are hearing/vestibular/ear and renal/urinary system.

NIH Rare Diseases:43 Gangliosidosis (gm2) type 1, also known as tay-sachs disease, is a rare inherited disorder that causes progressive destruction of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. tay-sachs is caused by the absence of a vital enzyme called hexosaminidase-a (hex-a). without hex-a, a fatty substance, or lipid, called gm2 ganglioside accumulates abnormally in cells, especially in the nerve cells of the brain. this ongoing accumulation causes progressive damage to the cells. last updated: 8/14/2012

NINDS:44 Tay-Sachs disease is a fatal genetic lipid storage disorder in which harmful quantities of a fatty substance called build up in tissues and nerve cells in the brain. The condition is caused by insufficient activity of an enzyme called that catalyzes the biodegradation of acidic fatty materials known as . Gangliosides are made and biodegraded rapidly in early life as the brain develops.
