  • In Pompe disease, a gene mutation prevents the body from making or making enough of an enzyme called acid alpha-glucosidase, which is necessary for proper muscle functioning.

  • In fact, three of the newer medicines — acarbose and miglitol (both alpha-glucosidase inhibitors) and nateglinide (a meglitinide) — actually decrease HbA1c less than some of the older drugs.

  • An inherited disease, Pompe is caused by the deficiency or lack of the enzyme acid alpha-glucosidase, which is needed for muscle development and function.

  • People with Pompe disease cannot produce the enzyme acid alpha-glucosidase, or GAA.

  • Harlequin CSA-DFI also uses alpha-glucosidase activity to differentiate C sakazakii strains from other members of the Enterobacteriaceae.

  • The production of alpha-glucosidase by the pathogen results in hydrolysis of the chromogenic substrate and the formation of green colonies, with other Enterobacteriaceae appearing colourless.

  • In this case the gene should be making [acid alpha-glucosidase], but it doesn't.

    Scientific American

  • Pediatrics, Pompe disease results from a recessively inherited deficiency in the gene encoding acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA), an enzyme that converts glycogen to glycogen in the lysosome, a saclike storage organelle in the cell that acts as a waste disposal system, leading to muscle weakness, organ damage including the brain, and possible death.

    Scientific American

  • People with the disease are deficient in an enzyme known as acid alpha-glucosidase, which is responsible for breaking down glycogen, a form of sugar stored in muscle cells.
