2015 Research

The University of Georgia Complex Carbohydrate Research Center and the University of Washington.

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
