There are at least 30, and perhaps as many as 50, lysosomal storage diseases. Taken together their clinical incidence is significant. Although each results from a different enzyme defect, a single receptor and a single 'recognition marker' are involved in all. The elucidation of these phenomena has taught a great deal about lysosomal function and promises to facilitate therapeutic intervention.
