Compound heterozygosity for a Wolman mutation is frequent among patients with cholesteryl ester storage disease. (1/20)

Cholesteryl ester storage disease and Wolman disease are rare autosomal recessive lipoprotein-processing disorders caused by mutations in the gene encoding human lysosomal acid lipase. Thus far we have elucidated the genetic defects in 15 unrelated CESD patients. Seven were homozygotes for the prevalent hLAL exon 8 splice junction mutation which results in incomplete exon skipping, while eight probands were compound heterozygotes for E8SJM and a rare mutation on the second chromosome. In this report, we describe the molecular basis of CESD in three compound heterozygous subjects of Czech and Irish origin. RFLP and DNA sequence analysis revealed that they were heteroallelic for the common G(934)-->A substitution in exon 8 of the hLAL gene and a mutation which, if inherited on both alleles, would be expected to result in complete loss of enzyme activity and to cause Wolman disease. In patients A. M. and J. J., two nucleotide deletions in exons 7 and 10 were detected, involving a T at position 722, 723, or 724 and a G in a stretch of five guanosines at positions 1064;-1068 of the hLAL cDNA. Both mutations result in premature termination of protein translation at residues 219 and 336, respectively, and in the production of truncated, inactive enzymes. Subject D. H., in contrast, is a compound heterozygote for the Arg(44)-->Stop mutation previously described in a French CESD proband. Combined with data in the literature, our results demonstrate that compound heterozygosity for a mutation causing Wolman disease is common among cholesteryl ester storage disease patients.  (+info)

Lysosomal acid lipase-deficient mice: depletion of white and brown fat, severe hepatosplenomegaly, and shortened life span. (2/20)

Lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) is essential for the hydrolysis of triglycerides (TG) and cholesteryl esters (CE) in lysosomes. A mouse model created by gene targeting produces no LAL mRNA, protein, or enzyme activity. The lal-/- mice appear normal at birth, survive into adulthood, and are fertile. Massive storage of TG and CE is observed in adult liver, adrenal glands, and small intestine. The age-dependent tissue and gross progression in this mouse model are detailed here. Although lal-/- mice can be bred to give homozygous litters, they die at ages of 7 to 8 months. The lal-/- mice develop enlargement of a single mesenteric lymph node that is full of stored lipids. At 6;-8 months of age, the lal-/- mice have completely absent inguinal, interscapular, and retroperitoneal white adipose tissue. In addition, brown adipose tissue is progressively lost. The plasma free fatty acid levels are significantly higher in lal-/- mice than age-matched lal+/+ mice, and plasma insulin levels were more elevated upon glucose challenge. Energy intake was also higher in lal-/- male mice, although age-matched body weights were not significantly altered from age-matched lal+/+ mice. Early in the disease course, hepatocytes are the main storage cell in the liver; by 3;-8 months, the lipid-stored Kupffer cells progressively fill the liver. The involvement of macrophages throughout the body of lal-/- mice provide evidence for a critical nonappreciated role of LAL in cellular cholesterol and fatty acid metabolism, adipocyte differentiation, and fat mobilization.  (+info)

Enzyme therapy for lysosomal acid lipase deficiency in the mouse. (3/20)

Lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) is the critical enzyme for the hydrolysis of the triglycerides (TG) and cholesteryl esters (CE) delivered to lysosomes. Its deficiency produces two human phenotypes, Wolman disease (WD) and cholesteryl ester storage disease (CESD). A targeted disruption of the LAL locus produced a null (lal( -/-)) mouse model that mimics human WD/CESD. The potential for enzyme therapy was tested using mannose terminated human LAL expressed in Pichia pastoris (phLAL), purified, and administered by tail vein injections to lal( -/-) mice. Mannose receptor (MR)-dependent uptake and lysosomal targeting of phLAL were evidenced ex vivo using competitive assays with MR-positive J774E cells, a murine monocyte/macrophage line, immunofluorescence and western blots. Following (bolus) IV injection, phLAL was detected in Kupffer cells, lung macrophages and intestinal macrophages in lal( -/-) mice. Two-month-old lal( -/-) mice received phLAL (1.5 U/dose) or saline injections once every 3 days for 30 days (10 doses). The treated lal( -/-) mice showed nearly complete resolution of hepatic yellow coloration; hepatic weight decreased by approximately 36% compared to PBS-treated lal( -/-) mice. Histologic analyses of numerous tissues from phLAL-treated mice showed reductions in macrophage lipid storage. TG and cholesterol levels decreased by approximately 50% in liver, 69% in spleen and 50% in small intestine. These studies provide feasibility for LAL enzyme therapy in human WD and CESD.  (+info)

Cholesteryl ester storage disease: complex molecular effects of chronic lovastatin therapy. (4/20)

To better characterize the in vivo effects of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibition on human lipid metabolism, an adolescent male with cholesteryl ester storage disease (CESD) was treated chronically with lovastatin. Therapy was associated with decreased liver-spleen size, improved but not normal serum lipids, a 26% decrease in hepatic cholesteryl ester, a 12% decrease in unesterified hepatic cholesterol, and a fourfold increase in hepatic low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor protein. Hepatic mRNA levels for the LDL receptor and apolipoprotein (apo) B standardized to levels of hepatic gamma actin mRNA were unchanged with therapy. Kinetic studies revealed no change in the LDL fractional catabolic rate and a decrease in the LDL production rate. Size exclusion chromatography showed striking reductions in plasma very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol and intermediate density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol but not LDL cholesterol with therapy. Mean LDL particle size and the LDL particle size range were increased by treatment. However, there was no difference in the ability of pretreatment or treatment LDL to bind to the LDL receptor on cultured cells consistent with previous studies in animals, indicating that lovastatin may alter LDL particles to impair interaction with the LDL receptor in vivo but not in vitro. Lovastatin therapy in CESD appears to be clinically beneficial and has complex effects on lipid metabolism that may include a dominant inhibitory effect on hepatic lipoprotein production, posttranscriptionally mediated induction of the LDL receptor, and alterations of LDL particles that interfere with their clearance by the LDL receptor in vivo.  (+info)

Treatment of dyslipidemia with lovastatin and ezetimibe in an adolescent with cholesterol ester storage disease. (5/20)

BACKGROUND: Cholesterol ester storage disease (CESD) is an autosomal recessive illness that results from mutations in the LIPA gene encoding lysosomal acid lipase. CESD patients present in childhood with hepatomegaly and dyslipidemia characterized by elevated total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), with elevated triglycerides and depressed high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). Usual treatment includes a low fat diet and a statin drug. RESULTS: In an 18-year old with CESD, we documented compound heterozygosity for two LIPA mutations: a novel frameshift nonsense mutation and a deletion of exon 8. The patient had been treated with escalating doses of lovastatin for approximately 80 months, with approximately 15% decline in mean LDL-C. The addition of ezetimibe 10 mg to lovastatin 40 mg resulted in an additional approximately 16% decline in mean LDL-C. CONCLUSION: These preliminary anecdotal findings in a CESD patient with novel LIPA mutations support the longer term safety of statins in an adolescent patient and provide new data about the potential efficacy and tolerability of ezetimibe in this patient group.  (+info)

The role of mannosylated enzyme and the mannose receptor in enzyme replacement therapy. (6/20)

Lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) is the critical enzyme for the hydrolysis of triglycerides (TGs) and cholesteryl esters (CEs) in lysosomes. LAL defects cause Wolman disease (WD) and CE storage disease (CESD). An LAL null (lal-/-) mouse model closely mimics human WD/CESD, with hepatocellular, Kupffer cell and other macrophage, and adrenal cortical storage of CEs and TGs. The effect on the cellular targeting of high-mannose and complex oligosaccharide-type oligosaccharide chains was tested with human LAL expressed in Pichia pastoris (phLAL) and CHO cells (chLAL), respectively. Only chLAL was internalized by cultured fibroblasts, whereas both chLAL and phLAL were taken up by macrophage mannose receptor (MMR)-positive J774E cells. After intraperitoneal injection into lal-/- mice, phLAL and chLAL distributed to macrophages and macrophage-derived cells of various organs. chLAL was also detected in hepatocytes. Ten injections of either enzyme over 30 d into 2- and 2.5-mo-old lal-/- mice produced normalization of hepatic color, decreased liver weight (50%-58%), and diminished hepatic cholesterol and TG storage. Lipid accumulations in macrophages were diminished with either enzyme. Only chLAL cleared lipids in hepatocytes. Mice double homozygous for the LAL and MMR deficiences (lal-/-;MMR-/-) showed phLAL uptake into Kupffer cells and hepatocytes, reversal of macrophage histopathology and lipid storage in all tissues, and clearance of hepatocytes. These results implicate MMR-independent and mannose 6-phosphate receptor-independent pathways in phLAL uptake and delivery to lysosomes in vivo. In addition, these studies show specific cellular targeting and physiologic effects of differentially oligosaccharide-modified human LALs mediated by MMR and that lysosomal targeting of mannose-terminated glycoproteins occurs and storage can be eliminated effectively without MMR.  (+info)

Cholesteryl ester storage disease in a young child presenting as isolated hepatomegaly treated with simvastatin. (7/20)

Cholesteryl ester storage disease (CESD) is an autosomal recessive disorder resulting from lysosomal acid lipase deficiency and is usually characterized by hepatomegaly and hyperlipidemia. This paper reports a two-year-old boy who had hepatosplenomegaly, hyperlipidemia and hypertransaminasemia determined incidentally. The liver biopsy sample was orange-yellow in appearance. Microscopically, microvesicular steatosis and birefringent crystals were seen in liver biopsy. The diagnosis of CESD was confirmed by the reduced human acid lipase activity in peripheral leukocytes. Simvastatin therapy was given and tolerated without side effects. Our patient is the youngest reported case in the literature treated with 3-hydroxy 3-methyl glutaryl (HMG) CoA reductase inhibitor.  (+info)

Lysosomal acid lipase deficiency impairs regulation of ABCA1 gene and formation of high density lipoproteins in cholesteryl ester storage disease. (8/20)

 (+info)

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a world-wide problem with a global prevalence estimated at 1.5 billion people. It is characterised by significant diversity and phenotypic heterogeneity. Morbidity rates are estimated at 20% to 30% in Western adults, increasing to 90% in patients who are morbidly obese or diabetic. Risk factors in non-obese NAFLD patients are of especial practical and theoretical importance. Cholesterol Ester Storage Disease (CESD) is an autosomal recessive chronic disease of variable phenotype, caused by a deficiency in lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) and characterized by accumulation of fat in tissues and organs. Hepatic accumulation of fat in this disorder can cause hepatomegaly with varying degrees of damage varying from steatosis to fibrosis, elevated aminotransaminases, and isolated splenomegaly. Since the contribution of LAL deficiency to non-obese NAFLD is poorly understood, the investigators propose to evaluating the association between NAFLD and LAL deficiency ...

AU - Goldstein, J. L.. PY - 1976. Y1 - 1976. N2 - Previous studies have shown that cultured fibroblasts derived from patients with genetic defects in lysosomal acid lipase (i.e. the Wolman Syndrome and Cholesteryl Ester Storage Disease) are defective in their ability to hydrolyze the cholesteryl esters contained in plasma low density lipoprotein (LDL). As a result, these mutant cells show a reduced responsiveness to the regulatory actions of LDL, as evidenced by a decreased LDL mediated suppression of the activity of 3 hydroxy 3 methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase and by a decreased LDL mediated activation of cellular cholesteryl ester formation. In the current studies, the Wolman Syndrome and Cholesteryl Ester Storage Disease cells were grown in the same Petri dish with mutant fibroblasts derived from a ...
Cholesteryl ester, a dietary lipid, is an ester of cholesterol. The ester bond is formed between the carboxylate group of a fatty acid and the hydroxyl group of cholesterol. Cholesteryl esters have a lower solubility in water due to their increased hydrophobicity. Esters are formed by replacing at least one -OH (hydroxyl) group with an -O-alkyl (alkoxy) group. They are hydrolyzed by pancreatic enzymes, cholesterol esterase, to produce cholesterol and free fatty acids. They are associated with atherosclerosis.

Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency (LALD) is a genetic disease which is characterized by abnormal lipid accumulation in many parts of the body due to a marked decrease in activity of the enzyme lysosomal acid lipase (LAL). Although a single disease, LALD presents with two major forms: early onset and late onset. Early onset LALD, also known as Wolman Disease, is characterized by severe malabsorption, growth failure, and hepatic failure and is usually fatal within the first year of life.. The late onset form of the disease, also known as Cholesteryl Ester Storage Disease (CESD), occurs in both children and adults and is an under-appreciated cause of fatty liver with prominent microvesicular steatosis and cirrhosis. Although the natural history of the disease has not been well studied, serious liver complications are frequently described including early death and liver transplantation. Other complications includes premature atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) associated with high levels of total ...

Lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) is a lysosomal enzyme that is involved in intracellular lipid metabolism. Complete deficiency of the LAL enzyme causes Wolman disease, while reduced but residual LAL activity (approximately 2%-8% of controls in blood leukocytes) causes cholesteryl ester storage disease (CESD). Wolman disease is fatal within the first year of life due to severe hepatomegaly, persistent diarrhea and failure to thrive. CESD is a milder disease that is characterized by hyperlipidemia and hepatomegaly that can be observed in childhood or develop in adulthood. Several CESD patients with no typical clinical symptoms or with only mild liver enlargement even at an advanced age have also been reported. In general, CESD is not associated with a reduced life span although atherosclerosis and chronic liver disease have been identified as a premature cause of death. The incidence of CESD in the general population is not known but has been estimated at approximately 2.5 per 100,000, while Woman ...

Lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) deficiency is an ultra-rare, progressive, autosomal recessive disorder resulting from an inborn error of lipid metabolism at the lysosomal level. It is characterised by the accumulation of cholesteryl esters and triglycerides in different tissues (liver, spleen, intestine, adrenal glands and mononuclear phagocyte system cells).1-3 We describe 2 cases of LAL deficiency diagnosed in childhood with different clinical presentations.. The first case corresponded to a boy aged 22 months referred to the metabolic disorder clinic for evaluation of hepatomegaly, splenomegaly and hypercholesterolaemia with normal liver enzyme levels. The key finding of the abdominal ultrasound scan was hepatomegaly due to fat accumulation and moderate splenomegaly. The evaluation for lysosomal storage disorders did not yield relevant results. Clinical suspicion of LAL deficiency led to performance of a LAL assay in a skin biopsy sample, which revealed substantially reduced enzymatic activity in ...

US regulators have issued a green light for Alexions long-term enzyme replacement therapy Kanuma, giving patients with the ultra rare genetic disorder lysosomal acid lipase deficiency access to a targeted treatment for the first time. - News - PharmaTimes
The European Medicines Agency has recommended for approval ten new medicines, including treatments for cancer and rare diseases.. First up, two enzyme replacement therapies for the treatment of rare genetic diseases: Kanuma (sebelipase alfa) for the treatment of lysosomal acid lipase deficiency, and Strensiq (asfotase alfa), the first therapy for the bone disease hypophosphatasia that started in childhood. Both drugs are manufactured by rare disease specialist Alexion - Kanuma was originally developed by Synageva, but the firm was acquired by Alexion last month, giving the US company an early boost from its purchase.. David Hallal, CEO of Alexion, said: The CHMP positive opinions for Strensiq and Kanuma are significant milestones in bringing these therapies to infants, children, and adults suffering from HPP and LAL-d in Europe. Both Strensiq and Kanuma are highly innovative enzyme replacement therapies that, if approved, will be the first treatments available for patients with HPP and LAL-d, ...

Moshe Wolman (November 10, 1914 - September 5, 2009) was an Israeli neuropathologist. He is considered one of the fathers of histochemistry.[citation needed] In 1954, he described Wolmans disease. Moshe Wolman was born in 1914 in Warsaw, Poland. He immigrated to Mandate Palestine in 1925. He grew up in Tel Aviv and graduated from the prestigious Herzliya Gymnasium (academic secondary school). He studied medicine in Italy (Florence 1932-1935 and Rome, 1935-1938). In 1939, he married Brigitte Bigi Koebbel with whom he had four children: filmmaker Dan Wolman, philosopher Ruth Manor (1944-2005), psychiatrist Naomi Oren, and composer Amnon Wolman. From 1938 to 1940, he worked in the Cancer Research Institute of the Hebrew University and did residency at the department of Internal Medicine of the Hadassah Hospital. In the 1940s, he volunteered to serve in the British Army and joined the 101 Military Mission (the famous Gideon Force of Orde Wingate). He was involved in the operation in 1941 that ...

Lipid droplets are ubiquitous triglyceride and sterol ester storage organelles required for energy storage homeostasis and biosynthesis. Although little is known about lipid droplet formation and regulation, it is clear that members of the PAT (perilipin, adipocyte differentiation related protein, tail interacting protein of 47 kDa) protein family coat the droplet surface and mediate interactions with lipases that remobilize the stored lipids. We identified key Drosophila candidate genes for lipid droplet regulation by RNA interference (RNAi) screening with an image segmentation-based optical read-out system, and show that these regulatory functions are conserved in the mouse. Those include the vesicle-mediated Coat Protein Complex I (COPI) transport complex, which is required for limiting lipid storage. We found that COPI components regulate the PAT protein composition at the lipid droplet surface, and promote the association of adipocyte triglyceride lipase (ATGL) with the lipid droplet ...
