Morquio A

MPS IVA is a progressive condition caused by pathogenic variants in the GALNS gene. GALNS is an important part of the body's process of breaking down large sugar molecules called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Pathogenic variants in GALNS lead to an accumulation of GAGs in the lysosomes. Lysosomes are the compartments in cells that break down molecules.
