Understanding Polyglucosan Body Formation in APBD, Lafora Disease, and RBCK1-Deficiency Disease

Researchers from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UT Southwestern) and the University of Tokyo have recently published an article describing the mechanistic pathways of APBD, Lafora Disease (LD), and RBCK1-Deficiency disease (RD) -- three glycogen storage disorders (GSDs). The study published in the journal Acta Neuropathologica presents novel biochemical and pathological firsts that enhance our understanding of APBD and inform efforts to develop effective therapies for this devastating disease.
