Pero los niños con la enfermedad de Tay-Sachs nacen sin una de esas importantes enzimas: la hexosaminidasa A (o HEX-A). Por lo tanto, conforme estas. La enfermedad de Tay-Sachs (ETS) es un trastorno genético mortal. Se genera cuando una sustancia grasa se acumula en el cerebro. Esta acumulación causa . A number sign (#) is used with this entry because Tay-Sachs disease (TSD) is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the alpha subunit.

Autopsy showed diffuse neuronal storage with zebra bodies and increased GM2-ganglioside.

However, in previous studies, the HEXA enzyme itself has been thought to be too large to pass through the specialized cell layer in the blood vessels that forms the blood—brain barrier in humans. Adenoviral gene therapy of the Tay-Sachs disease in hexosaminidase A-deficient knock-out mice.

Only the supply of both subunits allowed for Hexa overexpression, leading to massive secretion of the enzyme in serum, and full or partial restoration of enzymatic activity in all peripheral tissues tested.

Years later, Bernard Sachs, an American neurologist, reported similar findings when he reported a case of “arrested cerebral development” to other New York Neurological Society members.

If only one parent passes down the defective gene, the child becomes a carrier. Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 5 Gene s 1 Clinical signs and symptoms Publications in PubMed Other website s The Enigma of Selective Abortion”.


The chief characteristics of the disease are progressive mental and physical enfeeblement; weakness and paralysis of all the extremities; and marasmus, associated with symmetrical changes in the macula lutea.

In patients with a clinical suspicion for Tay—Sachs disease, with any age of onset, the initial testing involves an enzyme assay to measure the activity of hexosaminidase in serumfibroblastsor leukocytes. The Sacjs Theory of Molecular Evolution.


Diagnostic and treatment issues”. Someone homozygous for a nonfunctional mutation in the enzyme-encoding gene has little or no enzyme activity, so will manifest the abnormal aachs. A study of hexosaminidases in interspecific hybrids and in Gm2 gangliosidosis with a discussion on their genetic control. Bymore than different mutations had been identified in the human HEXA gene.

The authors suggested that the phenotypic differences between the 2 mouse models was the result of differences in the ganglioside degradation pathway between mice and humans. Waren Tay and Bernard Sachstwo physicians, described the disease’s progression and provided differential diagnostic criteria enfermerad distinguish it from other neurological disorders with similar symptoms.
