Arrow Gylcogen Storage Diseases Mnemonic

MNEMONIC for Glycogen Storage Diseases:
Very Poor Casing And Metabolism of Hers

Note: casing refers to storage
  • I- Von Gierke's (Glu6P deficiency)
  • II- Pompe's (lysosmal 1,4 glucosidase)
  • III- Cori (1,6 glucosidase)
  • IV- Anderson (glycogen branching enzyme)
  • V- McArdles (Muscle GlycogenPhosphoylase )
  • VI- Hers disease (Hepatic Glycogen Phosphorylase)
Also this might help;

POMPe's trashes the PUMP (cardiomegaly)
HERS Disease- its HEpatic glycogen phosphorylase deficiency
McArdles- its Muscle Glycogen phosphorylase deficiency

Similar like above,a little more help...

Very Poor Core And Metabolism of Hers

POMPe's - PUMP (heart has 4 chambers..so..1,4 glucosidase deficiency)
CORI's - Core ( abdominal core has 6 pack...so...1,6 glucosidase deficiency)

Default Glycogen Storage Diseases

This is my way. I have a hard time remembering the enzymes let alone the names. Here i put the similar enzymes next together, except for VGD and Pompe enzymes. Hope it helps....

Make (McArdle's Disease - Muscle glycogen phosphorylase)
Her (Hers - Hepatic glycogen phosphorylase)
Come (Cori's Disease - Debranching enzyme)
And (Anderson's - Branching Enzyme)
Visit (Von Gierke's - Glucose 6 phosphatase)
Pompei (Pompe's Disease - Lysosomal 1,4 glucosidase)
