Learn about the underlying biology of PMM2-CDG, what treatment options are available, and how you can make a difference to fill a very urgent gap. This video was produced by Alpha Epsilon Omega with support from the Amour Fund.


Second World Conference on CDG - August 2015

Foundation Glycosylation is proud to have sponsored the video recordings of the speakers at the Second World Conference on CDG held in Lyon, France August 30-31, 2015. To access the presentations from this highly successful event, please follow this link or click on the icon below.


This conference was a satellite symposium that preceded the Annual Symposium of the Society for the Study of Inborn Errors of Metabolism which was held on September 1-4, 2015. Click here to see the highlight video of the Second World Conference on Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation.

Zebrafish Model of Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Danio rerio, commonly referred to as the zebrafish, is an aquatic vertebrate that can be used to examine human glycosylation disorders. Zebrafish are especially powerful in studying developmental disorders and screening for therapeutics as their proteins and genes are similar to that of humans. The FoG and associated researchers are currently working on developing a zebrafish disease model of ALG9-CDG and ALG12-CDG by utilizing Crisper/Cas9 genome editing technology.

The following video demonstrates how zebrafish are used to study developmental and neuromotor diseases.
