Hunter syndrome


Hunter syndrome
Recessive mucopolysaccharidosis, X-linked, in which dermatan and heparan sulphates are not degraded. Because two lysosomal enzymes (heparan sulphate sulphatase and a -iduronidase) are involved in the breakdown of these glycosaminoglycans, fibroblasts from Hunter\'s syndrome will complement the fibroblasts from Hurler\'s patients in culture; by recapture of lysosomal enzymes from the medium, both types of cells in mixed culture become competent to digest glycosaminoglycans.
