taliglucerase alfa Taliglucerase alfa, a long term enzyme replacement therapy, is a recombinant analog of human lysosomal glucocerebrosidase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of glucocerebroside to glucose and ceramide, reducing the amount of accumulated glucocerebroside. Taliglucerase alfa uptake into cellular lysosomes is mediated by binding of Taliglucerase alfa mannose oligosaccharide chains to specific mannose receptors on the cell surface leading to internalization and subsequent transport to the lysosomes.
alglucerase modified form of human placental glucocerebrosidase; oligosaccharide units of glucocerebrosidase are sequentially deglycosylated to yield a mannose-terminated preparation which is targeted to the mannose lectin on the macrophage plasma membrane
vestronidase alfa Mucopolysaccharidosis VII (MPS VII or Sly syndrome) is a lysosomal disorder characterized by the deficiency of GUS that results in GAG accumulation in cells throughout the body leading to multisystem tissue and organ damage. Vestronidase alfa-vjbk is a recombinant form of human GUS and is intended to provide exogenous GUS enzyme for uptake into cellular lysosomes. Mannose-6-phosphate (M6P) residues on the oligosaccharide chains allow binding of the enzyme to cell surface receptors, leading to cellular uptake of the enzyme, targeting to lysosomes and subsequent catabolism of accumulated GAGs in affected tissues.
technetium Tc 99m tilmanocept Tilmanocept is a receptor-targeted radiopharmaceutical that is designed to rapidly transit lymphatic vessels; it biotargets, accumulates, and is retained in primary, key predictive, draining lymph nodes (sentinel lymphnodes). The drug substance, tilmanocept, specifically binds to mannose binding receptor proteins (CD206) that reside on the surface of macrophages and dendritic cells. Macrophages are present in high concentrations in lymph nodes.
