NGLY1 Deficiency Zebrafish Model Manifests Abnormalities of the Nervous and Musculoskeletal Systems

NGLY1 is an enigmatic enzyme with multiple functions across a wide range of species. In humans, pathogenic genetic variants in NGLY1 are linked to a variable phenotype of global neurological dysfunction, abnormal tear production, and liver disease presenting the rare autosomal recessive disorder N-glycanase deficiency. […] We created an ngly1 deficiency zebrafish model and studied the nervous and musculoskeletal (MSK) systems to further characterize the phenotypes and pathophysiology of the disease.
