Lacritin and other autophagy associated proteins in ocular surface health.
Hyderābād, India. In Exp Eye Res, Mar 2016
Mutation of arylsulfatase A, arylsulfatase B, ceroid-lipofuscinosis neuronal 3, mucolipin, or Niemann-Pick disease type C1 respectively underlie several diseases of apparently insufficient autophagic flux that affect the eye, including: metachromatic leukodystrophy, mucopolysaccharidosis type VI, juvenile-onset Batten disease, mucolipidosis IV, and Niemann-Pick type C associated with myelin sheath destruction of corneal sensory and ciliary nerves and of the optic nerve; corneal clouding, ocular hypertension, glaucoma and optic nerve atrophy; accumulation of 'ceroid-lipofuscin' in surface conjunctival cells, and in ganglion and neuronal cells; decreased visual acuity and retinal dystrophy; and neurodegeneration.

Over 130 ARSB mutations have been reported, causing absent or reduced arylsulfatase B (N-acetylgalactosamine 4-sulfatase) activity and interrupted dermatan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate degradation.

Galsulfase [Aryplase, arylsulfatase B, BM 102, Naglazyme, rhASB, recombinant human N-acetylgalactosamine-4-sulfatase, recombinant human arylsulfatase B] is under development with BioMarin Pharmaceutical as an enzyme replacement therapy for the treatment of mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) VI.
