Goldstein and Moerman (1975) reported finding an increased fraction of abnormally thermolabile enzymes, including glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, and hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase, in progeria fibroblasts. Based in part on the Orgel error-catastrophe hypothesis of aging (1963), it was suggested that diseases resembling premature aging may be the result of widespread errors in protein synthesis (Goldstein & Moerman, 1976). Abnormally high thermolabile enzyme levels in circulating erythrocytes from one progeria patient with intermediate levels in the parents was also reported (Goldstein & Moerman, 1978).
