Cross-species summary: A lysosomal storage disease in which there is a buildup (storage) of glucocerebroside in various tissues, due to the lack of the enzyme beta-glucocerebrosidase, whose task is to break down glucococerebroside into its constituent molecules. The buildup is associated with large foamy macrophages (Gaucher's cells). This phene has been renamed from 'Gaucher disease, type I' to 'Gaucher disease, generic'. Entries for specific types will be created (9/02/2023).
