    Patients of Gaucher’s disease possess Beta-Glucocerebrosidase enzymes that are deficient in their ability to breakdown glycolipid resulting in enlarged and irregularly shaped cells. Enlarged Gaucher’s cells can cause tissue invasion, posing threatening health problems such as hepatomegaly and splenomegaly as well as glycolipid deposits in the kidneys, lungs, bone marrow, and brain. The symptoms of this autosomal recessive disease, as Dr. Roscoe Brady discovered, are due to a mutation in the GBA…
