ACID, alpha-glucosidase, GAA, acid alpha-glucosidase, Glucan 1,4-alpha-Glucosidase, acid maltase
This gene encodes acid alpha-glucosidase, which is essential for the degradation of glycogen to glucose in lysosomes. Different forms of acid alpha-glucosidase are obtained by proteolytic processing. Defects in this gene are the cause of glycogen storage disease II, also known as Pompe's disease, which is an autosomal recessive disorder with a broad clinical spectrum. Three transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Patients who took thiazolidinedione, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors and insulin had a higher HZ risk than those taking metformin or sulphonylureas alone (aOR = 1.11, 1.14 and 1.18, p<0.001, respectively).
Friedreich Ataxia: From the Eye of a Molecular Biologist.
Review
New
Agarwal et al., Lucknow, India. In Neurologist, Sep 2015
The expansion of the GAA triplet repeat hinders the transcription, thereby reducing the level of the FXN transcript and consequently reducing the level of frataxin, a 210-amino acid protein.

Impact
Schulz et al., Aachen, Germany. In Lancet Neurol, Feb 2015
Age of disease onset was inversely correlated with the number of GAA repeats in the frataxin (FXN) gene: every 100 GAA repeats on the smaller repeat allele was associated with a 2·3 year (SE 0·2) earlier onset.

Review
Rizvi et al., Allahābād, India. In J Intercult Ethnopharmacol, 2015
The present available treatment option for diabetes like sulfonylurea, metformin and alpha-glucosidase are restricted by their limited actions, secondary failure rates, and side-effects; and unaffordable to the majority of the population.

In the present study we performed comparative analysis of the A genome chromosomes in diploid (Triticum urartu Tumanian ex Gandilyan, 1972, Triticum boeoticum Boissier, 1874 and Triticum monococcum Linnaeus, 1753) and polyploid wheat species representing two evolutionary lineages, Timopheevi (Triticum timopheevii (Zhukovsky) Zhukovsky, 1934 and Triticum zhukovskyi Menabde & Ericzjan, 1960) and Emmer (Triticum dicoccoides (Körnicke ex Ascherson & Graebner) Schweinfurth, 1908, Triticum durum Desfontaines, 1798, and Triticum aestivum Linnaeus, 1753) using a new cytogenetic marker - the pTm30 probe cloned from Triticum monococcum genome and containing (GAA)56 microsatellite sequence.
