Abstract: From 10 patients with carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein (CDG) syndrome due to phosphomannomutase (PMM) deficiency, out of 10 lysosomal enzymes, 7 enzyme activities were measured in serum and 9 in leukocytes. In serum there was a 2-fold to 4-fold increase in activity of beta-glucuronidase, beta-hexosaminidase, beta-galactosidase, and arylsulphatase A. In leukocytes, however, several enzymes had reduced activity, particularly alpha-fucosidase, beta-glucuronidase and alpha-mannosidase. These abnormalities could result from missorting, defective reuptake and/or reduced stability of the enzymes due to the defective glycosylation.
