25920691 A novel noncoding homozygous GALT variant associated with asymptomatic galactosemia has been described in an infant of consanguineous heterozygous parents.
25592817 Novel missense mutations identified in Italian galactosemic patients.
25268296 GALT activity in red blood cells of patients with galactosaemia
25124065 In Korean population, novel GALT mutations were identified in the galactosemia patients different from those of other populations.
25052314 Mutation activates a cryptic donor splice site, inducing an aberrant splicing of the GALT pre-mRNA, which in turn leads to a frameshift with inclusion of a premature stop codon.
24045215 suggests that GALT mutations are ethnic-specific and that galactosemia is a heterogeneous disorder at the molecular level
23924834 In this report, we present GALT gene mutations in 56 cases of galactosemia from Turkey identified using DNA microarray resequencing.
23690308 Data suggest that in classic galactosemia residual GALT activity (predicted from activity of recombinant GALT matching patient's mutation) correlates with reduced ovarian reserve (as indicted by biological marker, circulating anti-Mullerian hormone).
23583749 HGALT requires a level of flexibility to function optimally and that altered folding is the underlying reason of impairment in all the variants tested here.
23022339 The novel GALT gene mutations included 6 missense mutations viz. Y89H, Q103R, P166A, S181F, K285R, R333L; one nonsense mutation, S307X and 3 silent mutations--Q103Q, K210K and H319H.
