Background: Acid -glucosidase is trafficked to the lysosome by LIMP-2.
Results: A unique 11-amino acid sequence on acid -glucosidase was critical for its LIMP-2-dependent targeting to the lysosome.
Conclusion: This sequence is essential for oligosaccharide-independent targeting of synthesized acid -glucosidase to the lysosome.
Significance: Modification of this sequence has basic/therapeutic implications for Gaucher disease and its comorbidities (e.g. Parkinson disease).
