The Golgi apparatus in disease

  • N. K. Gonatas
Part of the Molecular and Cell Biology Updates book series (MCBU)


As attested by the chapters in this book, the past fifteen years have witnessed impressive progress towards the understanding of the structure and function of the Golgi apparatus (GA) from yeast to the higher eukaryotes. This progress has made possible the recognition and better appreciation of defects in the organelle which are associated with disease. This review on the GA in disease will include the following topics:

Defects of the GA in diseases with abnormal trafficking or processing of proteins and lipids.

  • The phosphotransferase deficiency in I-cell disease and pseudo-Hurler polydystrophy.

  • The deficiency of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate 5-phosphatase in the oculocerebrorenal syndrome of Lowe.

  • Cystic fibrosis and the hypothesis of defective acidification.

  • Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease and the hypothesis of delayed proteoglycan synthesis.

  • The block of enzyme transport in congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency.

  • Congenital dyserythropoietic anaemia type II (HEMPAS), and a putative defect of alpha-mannosidase II or Nacetylglucosaminyl-transferase II.

  • Tangier disease and type-C Niemann-Pick disease; disorders involving the transport of lipids in the GA.

Autoimmune diseases and antibodies against the GA.

  • Sjogren’s syndrome and the p230trans-Golgi protein.

  • Systemic lupus erythematosus and the Golgin-95 and -160 kD proteins.

Fragmentation of the GA.

  • MG160, a fibroblast growth factor and E-selectin binding sialoglycoprotein of the medial cisternae of the GA, is a reliable marker of the organelle in normal and diseased tissues.

  • Fragmentation of the GA of motor neurons in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and in transgenic mice expressing mutant human Cu,Zn superoxide dismutase 1, an animal model of ALS.

  • Fragmentation of the neuronal GA in Alzheimer’s disease, and genetic and biochemical evidence for the involvement of the organelle in the pathogenesis of the disease.
