Chemical Induction of Lysosomal Storage

Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 68)


Primary lysosomal storage disorders involve the accumulation of lipids, mucopolysaccharides or saccharides following a genetic mutation of the corresponding lysosomal hydrolases. Aside from these conditions it is becoming apparent that there are other types of storage disorders which do not result from a specific hydrolase deficiency but reflect a more generalized impairment of the lysosomal digestion. We have proposed to call such disorders secondary lysosomal storage disorders (1).
