Morquio B, also known as Mucopolysaccharidosis type IV (MPS IV), is a progressive disease mostly impacting the skeleton, caused by mutations in GLB1, the gene that encodes the beta-galactosidase (GLB) enzyme. GM1 Gangliosidosis is a hereditary, progressive disease mostly impacting neurons in the brain and spinal cord, caused by mutations in GLB1. In both diseases, these mutations result in the misfolding and subsequent dysfunction of GLB, which leads to toxic substrate accumulation in organs and tissues. Gain is developing allosteric regulators that are designed to decrease toxic substrate accumulation in organs and tissues of patients with Morquio B and GM1 Gangliosidosis in order to potentially provide the first treatment approach for the disease’s neurological symptoms.
