Lysosomal functions and dysfunctions: Molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying Gaucher disease and its association with Parkinson disease.

Adv Drug Deliv Rev 2022 Jun 25:114402. Epub 2022 Jun 25.

Lysosomal And Rare Disorders Research And Treatment Center (LDRTC), Fairfax, Virginia, USA.

Lysosomes have a critical role in maintaining normal cellular homeostasis mediated by their involvement in secretion, plasma membrane repair, cell signaling and energy metabolism. Lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs) are a group of approximately 50 rare disorders caused by lysosomal dysfunction that occur due to mutations in a gene of a lysosomal protein. Gaucher disease (GD), an autosomal recessive disorder and one of the most common LSDs, is caused by the deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme glucocerebrosidase (GCase), due to biallelic mutations in the GBA1 gene.

Electronic address:

Cancer immunotherapy has achieved remarkable success over the past decade by modulating patients' own immune systems and unleashing pre-existing immunity. However, only a minority of cancer patients across different cancer types are able to benefit from immunotherapy treatment; moreover, among those small portions of patients with response, intrinsic and acquired resistance remains a persistent challenge. Because the tumor microenvironment (TME) is well recognized to play a critical role in tumor initiation, progression, metastasis, and the suppression of the immune system and responses to immunotherapy, understanding the interactions between the TME and the immune system is a pivotal step in developing novel and efficient cancer immunotherapies.
