Type I glycogen storage diseases: disorders of the glucose-6-phosphatase/glucose-6-phosphate transporter complexes.
Bethesda, United States. In J Inherit Metab Dis, May 2015
Disorders of the glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase)/glucose-6-phosphate transporter (G6PT) complexes consist of three subtypes: glycogen storage disease type Ia (GSD-Ia), deficient in the liver/kidney/intestine-restricted G6Pase-α (or G6PC); GSD-Ib, deficient in a ubiquitously expressed G6PT (or SLC37A4); and G6Pase-β deficiency or severe congenital neutropenia syndrome type 4 (SCN4), deficient in the ubiquitously expressed G6Pase-β (or G6PC3).
Neutrophil energetics and oxygen sensing.
Sheffield, United Kingdom. In Blood, 2014
In this issue of Blood, Jun et al, through the study of neutrophils deficient in the glucose-6-phosphate transporter, describe a novel role for the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPARG) pathway in the regulation of key neutrophil functions and link this to concomitant hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) 1α stabilization.
