Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis with DNAJC5/CSPα mutation has PPT1 pathology and exhibit aberrant protein palmitoylation.
 

Author(s): Michael X Henderson, Gregory S Wirak, Yong-Quan Zhang, Feng Dai, Stephen D Ginsberg, Natalia Dolzhanskaya, John F Staropoli, Peter C G Nijssen, TuKiet T Lam, Amy F Roth, Nicholas G Davis, Glyn Dawson, Milen Velinov, Sreeganga S Chandra

Journal: Acta Neuropathol.. 2016 Apr;131(4):621-37.

 

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL) are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders with lysosomal pathology (CLN1-14). Recently, mutations in the DNAJC5/CLN4 gene, which encodes the presynaptic co-chaperone CSPα were shown to cause autosomal-dominant NCL. Although 14 NCL genes ...

Proteolytic processing of the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis related lysosomal protein CLN5.
 

Author(s): Bhagya De Silva, Jessie Adams, Stella Y Lee

Journal: Exp. Cell Res.. 2015 Oct;338(1):45-53.

 

CLN5 is a soluble lysosomal glycoprotein. Deficiency in CLN5 protein causes neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, an inherited neurodegenerative lysosomal storage disorder. The function of CLN5 and how it affects lysosome activity are unclear. We identified two forms of the CLN5 protein ...
