“…A hallmark of Niemann-Pick disease, type C (NPC) is the progressive degeneration of Purkinje neurons in the cerebellum caused by the accumulation of free cholesterol and glycosphingolipids in the lysosome. Recent studies suggest that the state of glycosylation of lysosomal membrane proteins may play a role in disease progression. Our study has identified the presence of a highly glycosylated form of Lysosome Associated Membrane Protein 1 (LAMP1) that correlated spatiotemporally with Purkinje neuron loss… Cerebrospinal fluid from five females and five males of varying age and severity was used in this study. Single donor normal human CSF from five females and five males was purchased from Innovative Research, Novi, MI. All samples were stored at -80˚C prior to being assayed…”
