04/01/1980 - "Using 4-methylumbelliferyl-alpha-L-iduronide as a substrate, alpha-L-iduronidase activity was measured in leukocytes and in lymphoblastoid cells obtained from patients with alpha-L-iduronidase deficiency and from obligate heterozygotes for this disease. "
01/01/1980 - "Comparison of the substrate 4-methylumbelliferyl-alpha-l-iduronide with phenyl-alpha-L-iduronide for the diagnosis of Hurler's disease in cultured cells."
01/01/1991 - "It was shown that 4-trifluoromethylumbelliferyl-alpha-L-iduronide, along with the commonly used 4-methylumbelliferyl-alpha-L-iduronide, can serve as a specific substrate for alpha-L-iduronidase and is therefore suitable for demonstrating the enzyme deficiency in patients with Hurler disease, as well as the decrease of enzyme activity in heterozygous disease carriers. "
01/01/1991 - "Activity of alpha-L-iduronidase was studied in leukocytes of healthy persons, of patients with Hurler disease and of heterozygous carriers of the disease where 4-methylumbelliferyl-alpha-L-iduronide and 4-trifluoromethylumbelliferyl-alpha-L-iduronide were used as substrates. "
01/01/1980 - "4-Methylumbelliferyl-alpha-l-iduronide provided a more sensitive method than phenyl-alpha-l-iduronide for the estimation of alpha-l-iduronidase in cultured cells and could be used to diagnose Hurler's disease. "
