Glucocerebrosidase and glycolipids: In and beyond the lysosome
The lysosomal β-glucosidase named glucocerebrosidase (GCase) is a retaining β-glucosidase that hydrolyzes the glycosphingolipid glucosylceramide (GlcCer) to ceramide and glucose at acid pH.
A novel formulation for skin barrier repair : from ex vivo assessment towards clinical studies
The stratum corneum is the outermost skin layer and consists of dead cells embedded in a lipid matrix.
