Metabolism of galactosylceramide in the twitcher mouse an animal model of human globoid cell leukodystrophy

Metabolism of galactosylceramide in the twitcher mouse an animal model of human globoid cell leukodystrophy

Biochimica et Biophysica Acta 879(2): 215-220

The metabolism of galactosylceramide was investigated in normal and twitcher mice, an animal model for human globoid cell leukodystrophy. The findings were compared with data obtained on human tissues. In vitro studies demonstrated that there were two genetically distinct enzymes that hydrolyze galactosylceramide: galactosylceramidase I and II.
