Stbd1 is highly elevated in skeletal muscle of Pompe disease mice but suppression of its expression does not affect lysosomal glycogen accumulation.

Previous studies strongly suggest that starch binding domain containing protein 1 (Stbd1) plays an important role in intracellular glycogen trafficking into lysosomes. We report here that Stbd1 expression is markedly increased in skeletal muscles but not in heart and liver of GAA-KO mice. An AAV2/9 vector expressing a Stbd1-specific shRNA effectively suppressed Stbd1 expression but did not alter lysosomal glycogen accumulation in the affected tissues of GAA-KO mice. Our results indicate that inhibition of Stbd1 does not appear to be an effective therapeutic approach for Pompe disease.
