The road to lysosome-related organelles: Insights from Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome and other rare diseases.

Oct 18, 2021

This article is a review of lysosome-related organelles.  They are specialized structures within a cell that have specific jobs to perform.  These organelles are involved in coloring in eyes and skin, hemostasis (stopping of bleeding), and lung function.  In HPS they do not function normally or are entirely absent.  Researchers continue to understand lysosome-related organelles and search intensively for treatment options.
