Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a heterogeneous group of rare inheritable lysosomal storage disorders, characterised by intracellular accumulation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the lysosomes, because of deficiency of various lysosomal enzymes required for the breaking down of these glycosaminoglycans molecules.
There have been relatively large numbers of recent studies on the analysis of glycosaminoglycan fragments by MS/MS as potential biomarkers for mucopolysaccharidoses.
