Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Six glycogen storage diseases (resulting from deficiencies of acid maltase, phosphorylase, phosphofructokinase, phosphoglycerate kinase, phosphoglycerate mutase, and lactate dehydrogenase) and one mitochondrial myopathy (cytochrome c oxidase deficiency) are reviewed to illustrate: 1) clinical heterogeneity, 2) biochemical heterogeneity, 3) evidence for tissue-specific and developmentally controlled isozymes, and 4) molecular genetic studies.
