A group of inherited enzyme deficiencies which feature elevations of GALACTOSE in the blood. This condition may be associated with deficiencies of GALACTOKINASE; UDPGLUCOSE-HEXOSE-1-PHOSPHATE URIDYLYLTRANSFERASE; or UDPGLUCOSE 4-EPIMERASE. The classic form is caused by UDPglucose-Hexose-1-Phosphate Uridylyltransferase deficiency, and presents in infancy with FAILURE TO THRIVE; VOMITING; and INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION. Affected individuals also may develop MENTAL RETARDATION; JAUNDICE; hepatosplenomegaly; ovarian failure (PRIMARY OVARIAN INSUFFICIENCY); and cataracts. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp61-3)
An enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of UDPgalactose from UTP and galactose-1-phosphate. It is present in low levels in fetal and infant liver, but increases with age, thereby enabling galactosemic infants who survive to develop the capacity to metabolize galactose. EC 2.7.7.10.

Generalised uridine diphosphate galactose-4-epimerase deficiency. (1/157)

The generalised form of epimerase deficiency galactosaemia has been described in only two children from unrelated families. Their progress is reported and three other affected children from these families are described. The initial presentation was similar to classic galactosaemia. Despite treatment all have shown poor growth and moderate learning difficulties. Three have sensorineural deafness and four have pronounced dysmorphic features. The two older female patients have normal pubertal development.  (+info)

Genetic basis of transferase-deficient galactosaemia in Ireland and the population history of the Irish Travellers. (2/157)

Transferase-deficient galactosaemia, resulting from deficient activity of galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT), is relatively common among the Travellers, an endogamous group of commercial/industrial nomads within the Irish population. This study has estimated the incidence of classical transferase-deficient galactosaemia in Ireland and determined the underlying GALT mutation spectrum in the Irish population and in the Traveller group. Based upon a survey of newborn screening records, the incidence of classical transferase-deficient galactosaemia was estimated to be 1 in 480 and 1 in 30,000 among the Traveller and non-Traveller communities respectively. Fifty-six classical galactosaemic patients were screened for mutation in the GALT locus by standard molecular methods. Q188R was the sole mutant allele among the Travellers and the majority mutant allele among the non-Travellers (89.1%). Of the five non-Q188R mutant alleles in the non-Traveller group, one was R333G and one F194L with three remaining uncharacterized. Anonymous population screening has shown the Q188R carrier frequency to be 0.092 or 1 in 11 among the Travellers as compared with 0.009 or 1 in 107 among the non-Travellers. The Q188R mutation was shown to be in linkage disequilibrium with a Sac I RFLP flanking exon 6 of the GALT gene. This represents the first molecular genetic description of classical transferase-deficient galactosaemia in Ireland and raises intriguing questions concerning the genetic history of the Irish Travellers.  (+info)

Subnormal retinal oxygenation response precedes diabetic-like retinopathy. (3/157)

PURPOSE: Determining which patients are at risk for the development of diabetic retinopathy is expected to greatly improve existing prevention and treatment options. In this study, using an animal model of diabetic retinopathy, the hypothesis was tested that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and a carbogen inhalation challenge provides important diagnostic information regarding the risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. METHODS: MRI was used to measure noninvasively the change in oxygen tension along the entire inner retina (i.e., from superior ora serrata to inferior ora serrata) during a carbogen (95% O2/5% CO2) inhalation challenge (IOVS 1996;37:2089). Two animal groups were examined by this MRI method at two time points: (1) rats fed either normal rat chow (n = 20) or a 50% galactose diet (n = 20) for 3.5 months (i.e., before the appearance of extensive retinal lesions) or (2) rats fed either normal rat chow (n = 3) for 15 months or a 30% galactose diet (n = 4) for 15 to 18 months (i.e., when lesions are present). Retinal biochemical and morphometric measurements were also obtained. RESULTS: After 3.5 months of galactosemia, before the appearance of extensive retinal morphologic lesions, a significant (P < 0.05) reduction in the panretinal oxygenation response was observed in the galactosemic group compared with its age-matched control. These galactose-fed animals also displayed a significantly (P < 0.05) larger oxygenation response in the inferior hemiretina than in the superior hemiretina. After 15 to 18 months of galactosemia, during the period when lesions are present, the panretinal oxygenation response remained significantly (P < 0.05) lower in the galactose-fed animals than in their age-matched controls. In contrast to the 3.5-month results, the oxygenation response in galactosemic animals at 15 to 18 months was significantly (P < 0.05) larger in the superior than in the inferior hemiretina. Hemiretinal oxygenation responses were not different in normal controls at either duration. CONCLUSIONS: MRI measurement of the retinal oxygenation response to a carbogen challenge appears to be a powerful new and noninvasive approach that may be useful for assessing aspects of pathophysiology underlying the development of diabetic retinopathy in galactosemic rats. These results support our working hypothesis and suggest that further research into the diagnostic potential of this MRI approach for predicting the development of diabetic retinopathy is warranted.  (+info)

Expression of human inositol monophosphatase suppresses galactose toxicity in Saccharomyces cerevisiae: possible implications in galactosemia. (4/157)

A suppressor of galactose toxicity in a gal7 yeast strain (lacking galactose 1-phosphate uridyl transferase) has been isolated from a HeLa cell cDNA library. Analysis of the plasmid clone indicated that the insert has an ORF identical to that of hIMPase (human myo-inositol monophosphatase). The ability of hIMPase to suppress galactose toxicity is sensitive to the presence of Li(+) in the medium. A gal7 yeast strain harboring a plasmid containing cloned hIMPase grows on galactose as a sole carbon source. hIMPase mediated galactose metabolism is dependent on the functionality of GAL1 as well as GAL10 encoded galactokinase and epimerase respectively. These results predicted that the UDP-glucose/galactose pyrophosphorylase mediated pathway may be responsible for the relief of galactose toxicity. Experiments conducted to test this prediction revealed that expression of UGP1 encoded UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase can indeed overcome the relief of galactose toxicity. Moreover, expression of UGP1 allows a gal7 strain to grow on galactose as a sole carbon source. Unlike the hIMPase mediated relief of galactose toxicity, UGP1 mediated relief of galactose toxicity is lithium insensitive. Based on our results and on the basis of available information on galactose toxicity, we suggest an alternative explanation for the molecular mechanism of galactose toxicity.  (+info)

A founder mutation in the GK1 gene is responsible for galactokinase deficiency in Roma (Gypsies). (5/157)

Galactokinase deficiency is an inborn error in the first step of galactose metabolism. Its major clinical manifestation is the development of cataracts in the first weeks of life. It has also been suggested that carriers of the deficiency are predisposed to presenile cataracts developing at age 20-50 years. Newborn screening data suggest that the gene frequency is very low worldwide but is higher among the Roma in Europe. Since the cloning of the galactokinase gene (GK1) in 1995, only two disease-causing mutations, both confined to single families, have been identified. Here we present the results of a study of six affected Romani families from Bulgaria, where index patients with galactokinase deficiency have been detected by the mass screening. Genetic linkage mapping placed the disease locus on 17q, and haplotype analysis revealed a small conserved region of homozygosity. Using radiation hybrid mapping, we have shown that GK1 is located in this region. The founder Romani mutation identified in this study is a single nucleotide substitution in GK1 resulting in the replacement of the conserved proline residue at amino acid position 28 with threonine (P28T). The P28T carrier rate in this endogamous population is approximately 5%, suggesting that the mutation may be an important cause of early childhood blindness in countries with a sizeable Roma minority.  (+info)

Molecular basis for phenotypic heterogeneity in galactosaemia: prediction of clinical phenotype from genotype in Japanese patients. (6/157)

We identified 14 mutations in 15 Japanese subjects from 13 families with galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT) deficiency using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) and direct sequence analysis. These mutations accounted for 22 (96%) of 23 mutant alleles in 15 Japanese subjects. The mutational spectrum included nine missense mutations (M142V, G179D, A199T, R231H, W249R, N314D, P325L, R333Q, and R333W), two deletions (L275fsdelT and Q317fsdelC), a nonsense mutation (W249X), and two splicing mutations (V85-N97fsdel38bp and IVS4nt+1). Ten of the 14 mutations have not been reported in Caucasians. Differences in frequency and spectrum of GALT mutations suggest that the mutations may have occurred after racial divergence of Caucasians and Asians. The Duarte variant in Japanese was associated with the N314D mutation, g.1105G > C, g.1323G > A, and g.1391G > A (SacI -) polymorphisms, as in Caucasians. The Duarte variant may have occurred before racial divergence, and was an ancient mutation. In vitro GALT activities of nine missense mutations were determined by a COS cell expression system, and indicated between 1.3% and 35% of wild-type control. Patients with R333Q (29% in vitro GALT activity) or A199T (35%) showed mild clinical phenotypes, i.e. no ovarian failure or neurological deterioration. Genotype determination is useful for predicting biochemical and clinical phenotypes in classic galactosaemia, and can be of further help in managing patients with this disorder.  (+info)

Quantitative Beutler test for newborn mass screening of galactosemia using a fluorometric microplate reader. (7/157)

BACKGROUND: The Beutler enzyme spot test is an effective assay for newborn mass screening of galactosemia, but it is qualitative and relies on visual interpretation. We describe a quantitative, instrumental modification of the assay. METHODS: We modified the macroscopic visual Beutler enzyme spot test by adding extraction of blood components from filter paper, deproteinization with acetone-methanol, and quantification and recording by a fluorescent microplate reader and personal computer. All handling was performed in microplates. The measurement time was 90 min. RESULTS: Fluorescence intensity (FI) of healthy controls correlated with hematocrit and galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT) activity. Patients with GALT deficiency were distinguished clearly from healthy subjects and heterozygous carriers by FI. FI decreased to 75% of the initial activity after storage at 25 degrees C for 3 days and to 40% after storage at 37 degrees C for 7 days. Screening of 46 742 newborns yielded 1 false-positive result (in a heterozygous carrier), 1 patient with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, and no apparent false negatives as judged by concurrent measurements of galactose and galactose-1-phosphate. CONCLUSIONS: The quantitative Beutler test can provide precise GALT activity in newborn mass screening, and can take into consideration the influence of high temperature and humidity, duration between sampling and testing, and anemia. This method is clinically useful, simple, automated, and highly reliable for newborn mass screening of galactosemia.  (+info)

The relationship of genotype to cognitive outcome in galactosaemia. (8/157)

AIMS: To evaluate the cognitive outcome of a cohort of children with galactosaemia in relation to genotype. METHODS: The cohort was drawn from children notified to the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit galactosaemia study which ran from 1988 to 1990. Cognitive outcome was assessed using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children or the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence. Parents completed a questionnaire detailing educational status, and the attending paediatrician returned a questionnaire regarding age at diagnosis and biochemical outcome over the previous two years. RESULTS: A total of 45 children were genotyped: 30 were homoallelic for the Q188R mutation, the remainder being heteroallelic for Q188R with K285N (n = 4), L195P (n = 4), or other mutations (n = 7). Psychometric evaluation was available in 34 cases: mean full scale IQ was 79, verbal quotient 79, and performance quotient 82. Genotype was not related to galactose-1-phosphate (Gal-1-P) concentrations. However, children homoallelic for the Q188R mutation had significantly lower IQ scores than those who were heteroallelic (73. 6 v 94.8). This difference was independent of social and demographic influences and Gal-1-P concentrations over the previous two years. CONCLUSIONS: In children with galactosaemia, cognitive outcome appears to relate to genotype rather than metabolic control, as reflected by Gal-1-P concentrations. The value of measuring Gal-1-P concentrations routinely once successfully established on a galactosaemia diet is questionable as concentrations do not appear to affect outcome. In the UK population, homozygosity for the Q188R mutation is invariably associated with a poor outcome, and there is evidence that variability in neurocognitive outcome is at least part dependent on allelic heterogeneity.  (+info)

Classic galactosemia (OMIM 230400) is an autosomal recessive disorder that results from profound impairment of galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase (GALT, EC 2.7.7.12), the middle enzyme in the Leloir pathway of galactose metabolism (see review by Fridovich-Keil and Walter, 2008). In most western populations, classic galactosemia occurs with a frequency of at least 1/60,000 live births; the rate is substantially higher in some groups. Infants with classic galactosemia generally appear normal at birth but present with escalating symptoms within days of exposure to dietary galactose, which, as a constituent monosaccharide of lactose, is abundant in breast milk and milk-based formulae. Acute symptoms range from cataracts, failure to thrive, vomiting and diarrhea to hepatomegaly, bleeding abnormalities and Escherichia coli sepsis, which can be lethal. Absent intervention, infants with classic galactosemia often succumb in the neonatal period (see review by Fridovich-Keil and Walter, ...

N2 - White matter abnormalities have been observed in patients with classic galactosemia, an inborn error of galactose metabolism. However, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data collected in the past were generally qualitative in nature. Our objective was to investigate white matter microstructure pathology and examine correlations with outcome and behaviour in this disease, by using multi-shell diffusion weighted imaging. In addition to standard diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI) was used to estimate density and orientation dispersion of neurites in a group of eight patients (aged 16-21 years) and eight healthy controls (aged 15-20 years). Extensive white ...

Infants are routinely screened for galactosemia in the United States, and the diagnosis is made while the person is still an infant. Infants affected by galactosemia typically present with symptoms of lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, failure to thrive, and jaundice. None of these symptoms are specific to galactosemia, often leading to diagnostic delays. Newborn screening (NBS), if available, is able to diagnose the majority of affected infants. If the family of the baby has a history of galactosemia, doctors can test prior to birth by taking a sample of fluid from around the fetus (amniocentesis) or from the placenta (chorionic villus sampling or CVS).[7] A galactosemia test is a blood test (from the heel of the infant) or urine test that checks for three enzymes that are needed to change galactose sugar that is found in milk and milk products into glucose, a sugar that the human body uses for energy. A person with galactosemia doesnt have one of these enzymes. This causes high levels of galactose ...
Linn Mamsen, MSc Ph.D., from Laboratory of Reproductive Biology at Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet has published an article in Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics (JARG): Cryopreservation of ovarian tissue may be considered in young girls with galactosemia.. In a short statement about the recent publication, Linn Mamsen says: We have found that girls with galactosemia below the age of 5 years have morphological normal follicles and their follicle density is not significantly different from controls. No follicles were detected in the ovary from an 11-year-old girl with galactosemia. Expression of AMH, GDF-9, BMP-15 and PAPP-A was similar in follicles from girls with galactosemia and control.. These findings suggest that young girls with galactosemia may have follicles and fertility cryopreservation is an option in this patient group. Though the pathophysiology of galactosemia leading to accelerated follicle loss is unknown and may be related to the diagnosing itself, and ...
Classic galactosemia type I is a metabolic disorder. It causes a low level or lack of an enzyme called galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase. This enzyme changes galactose to glucose. Galactose is a simple sugar found in milk products. Glucose is the usable form of sugar in the human body. Since there is not enough of the enzyme, galactose builds up in the blood. This build up can cause severe damage to the liver, kidneys, central nervous system, and other body systems. If undetected, galactosemia is fatal. Type II is a less severe form of this disease due to low levels of galactose kinase. This type may be managed with a few dietary restrictions. It does not carry the risk of neurologic or liver damage. Type III is a form with variable severity due to low levels of galactose epimerase. This type can cause cataracts, delayed growth and development, intellectual disability, liver disease, and kidney problems. This sheet will focus on classic galactosemia.
Galactosemia is a metabolic disease that can cause ovarian failure. Children with galactosemia are missing an enzyme needed to process a sugar called galactose. This is found in the diet primarily in lactose (in dairy products and many nutritional and pharmaceutical extenders). Galactose is now known to be present in many other foods, especially beans and peas. When you have galactosemia, the ovaries are slowly destroyed over the course of the first few decades of life (but not testicles, for unknown reasons). Although a strict galactose-free diet may be able to curtail a life-threatening metabolic derangement in newborns, continued avoidance of galactose does generally not prevent other long-term complications, including ovarian failure. The exact mechanism by which the inability to process galactose injures the ovaries is uncertain.. Widespread newborn screening for galactosemia in the United States has made undetected galactosemia uncommon. For those who have not been screened, a blood test ...
Galactosemia is an autosomal recessive disorder that results from a deficiency of any 1 of the 3 enzymes catalyzing the conversion of galactose to glucose: galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT), galactokinase (GALK), and uridine diphosphate galactose-4-epimerase (GALE). GALT deficiency is the most common cause of galactosemia and is often referred to as classic galactosemia. The complete or near-complete deficiency of GALT enzyme is life-threatening if left untreated. Complications in the neonatal period include failure to thrive, liver failure, sepsis, and death.. Galactosemia is treated by a galactose-restricted diet, which allows for rapid recovery from the acute symptoms and a generally good prognosis. Despite adequate treatment from an early age, individuals with galactosemia remain at increased risk for developmental delays, speech problems, and abnormalities of motor function. Females with galactosemia are at increased risk for premature ovarian failure. Based upon reports by ...

Sub-optimal language development is associated with the metabolic disorder galactosaemia (GAL). Some children with GAL are identified with language impairment from the initial stages of language learning, but a subset of children may exhibit disrupted developmental gains in speech and language skill after a period of age-appropriate skill development. The developmental trajectory of communicative skills in a female with GAL who at 18 months of age presented with age-appropriate skills is presented. Monitoring over an 18-month period indicated appropriate developmental pace on all measures, but receptive vocabulary development is developing at a lower level of functioning. Her below-average vocabulary skills coupled with the risk of emerging skill deficits concomitant with ongoing disruptions to central nervous system maturation associated with GAL suggests an increased risk of emergent skill deficits. Maturation of language capabilities is ongoing; therefore age at assessment may be critical to ...
RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats were maintained in poor glycemic control (PC, GHb ∼12%) or in good glycemic control (GC, GHb ∼7.0%) for 4 months, or were allowed to maintain PC for 2 months, followed by GC for 2 additional months (PC-Rev). For experimental galactosemia, a group of normal rats were fed a 30% galactose diet for 4 months or for 2 months, followed by a normal diet for 2 additional months. Trimethyl histone H4 lysine 20 (H4K20me3), acetyl histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9), and nuclear transcriptional factor NF-κB p65 and p50 at the retinal sod2 promoter and enhancer were examined by chromatin immunoprecipitation. ...
Galctose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT) is an enzyme responsible for one step in this process. When this is absent/deficient galactose cannot be changed to glucose and results in a number of clinical abnormalities. Galactosemia quantitation is a blood test that checks the levels of the enzyme known as GALT.
Chronic experimental hyperglycemia mediated by galactose has been shown to induce browning and cross-linking of rat tail tendon collagen that could be duplicated in vitro by nonenzymatic galactosylation. To investigate the nature of these changes, Sprague-Dawley rats were placed on a 33% galactose diet without and with sorbinil for 6 and 12 mo. Collagen-linked fluorescence and pentosidine cross-links increased with age and galactosemia in tail tendons (P , 0.001) and skin but were essentially unresponsive to aldose reductase inhibition (ARI). In contrast, tendon breaking time in urea, a likely parameter of cross-linking, was markedly improved (P , 0.001) by ARI. Fluorescence that was inhibited by sorbinil treatment was increased in pepsin and proteinase K digest of aortic tissue from galactosemic rats (P , 0.001), but impaired enzymatic digestibility was not observed. Systolic blood pressure as potential consequence of aortic stiffening was not increased in galactosemia. These data suggest that ...
During incubation with galactose, galactosemic leukocytes accumulated more galactose-l-phosphate than did normal leukocytes. Concomitant determination of glucose oxidation, with C14 glucose, revealed no inhibition of the hexosemonophosphate pathway. These results are at variance with recent studies in rat lens tissue, which suggests that intracellular galactose-1-phosphate depressed glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity and the oxidative pathway. ...
Although breastfeeding is optimal for infants, there are a few conditions under which breastfeeding may not be in the best interest of the infant. Breastfeeding is contraindicated in infants with classic galactosemia (galactose 1-phosphate uridyltransferase deficiency)103; mothers who have active untreated tuberculosis disease or are human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I-or II-positive104,105; mothers who are receiving diagnostic or therapeutic radioactive isotopes or have had exposure to radioactive materials (for as long as there is radioactivity in the milk)106-108; mothers who are receiving antimetabolites or chemotherapeutic agents or a small number of other medications until they clear the milk109,110; mothers who are using drugs of abuse (street drugs); and mothers who have herpes simplex lesions on a breast (infant may feed from other breast if clear of lesions). Appropriate information about infection-control measures should be provided to mothers with infectious diseases.111. In the ...
Classical galactosemia (CG) patients frequently develop long-term complications despite early dietary treatment. The highly variable clinical outcome is poorly understood and a lack of prognostic biomarkers hampers individual prognostication and treatment. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between residual galactose oxidation capacity and clinical and biochemical outcomes in CG patients with varying geno- and phenotypes. The noninvasive 1-13C galactose breath test was used to assess whole body galactose oxidation capacity. Participants received a 7 mg/kg oral dose of 1-13C labelled galactose. The galactose oxidation capacity was determined by calculating the cumulative percentage dose of the administered galactose (CUMPCD) recovered as 13CO2 in exhaled air.

Galactosemia, an inherited disorder, is the inability of the body to metabolize galactose which results in damage to the liver, central nervous system, and other body systems. Galactose makes up half of lactose, the sugar found in milk.
Explains test for galactosemia, a rare disease passed from parents to children. Covers blood or urine test that checks a newborn for enzymes needed to change galactose from milk into glucose, a sugar used for energy. Explains why and how the test is done.
Dr. Lester Thompson answered: Inherited: Galactosemia is a autosomal recessive inherited condition which causes you to metabolise ...

Clinically relevant features of monogenic diseases, including severity of symptoms and age of onset, can vary widely in response to environmental differences as well as to the presence of genetic modifiers affecting the traits penetrance and expressivity. While a better understanding of modifier loci could lead to treatments for Mendelian diseases, the rarity of individuals harboring both a disease causing allele and a modifying genotype hinders their study in human populations. We examined the genetic architecture of monogenic trait modifiers using a well-characterized yeast model of the human Mendelian disease classic galactosemia. Yeast strains with loss of function mutations in the yeast ortholog (GAL7) of the human disease gene (GALT) fail to grow in the presence of even small amounts of galactose due to accumulation of the same toxic intermediates that poison human cells. To isolate and individually genotype large numbers of the very rare (~0.1%) galactose-tolerant recombinant progeny ...

There is an emergence of a growing number of applications and services based on spatiotemporal data, in the most diverse areas of knowledge and human activity. The representation of the evolution of deformable moving objects, i.e. objects whose position, shape and extent change continuously over time, is particularly challenging, the methods proposed in the literature do not always obtain a realistic representation of the actual evolution of the phenomena, the quality of the representation is measured (evaluated) visually, and the prediction of future evolutions is not considered. In this research project, alternative methods capable of obtaining a realistic representation of the evolution of deformable moving objects will be studied, data models defining the necessary data structures will be proposed, algorithms for spatiotemporal operations will be studied and developed, and the results obtained will be evaluated. An effort will be made to establish quality metrics and a benchmark. Initially, ...

Galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase is a blood test that measures the level of a substance called GALT, which helps break down milk sugars in your body. A low level of this substance causes a condition called galactosemia.
Deficiency of this enzyme is one of the rarer, non-classic, causes of galactosaemia. The classic form of galactosaemia is associated with galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (G1PUT) deficiency. Like G1PUT deficiency, galactokinase deficiency causes cataracts in the neonatal period, but the early systemic effects of galactokinase deficiency are less severe. ...

human disease - Phenylketonuria and galactosemia - Phenylketonuria (PKU) and galactosemia also are genetically inherited metabolic diseases. Both result from the lack of a key enzyme needed to convert one type of chemical compound into another. PKU is caused by an inability to metabolize the amino acid phenylalanine. People with galactosemia cannot change galactose, one type of sugar, into glucose, another type. Both diseases can result in intellectual disability in children if not corrected in time. (See also heredity.)
The clinical presentation and outcome of 15 neonates with porto-systemic (PS) shunt detected by mass screening (Paigen method) for galactosemia are reviewed. Routine screening for galactosemia initially recognized fourteen patients, but one patient was discovered by the presentation of multiple skin hemangiomas and subsequent re-screening for galactosemia. The majority of patients were excluded by enzyme assay for hereditary galactosemias and diagnosed by ultrasonography and /or angiogram as having PS shunts in the neonatal period. Galactose is effectively extracted from portal blood by liver and PS shunts result in hypergalactosemia. The neonates with PS shunts were separated into 3 types. Two patients had congenital absence of portal vein (CAPV) with PS shunt by ductus venosus Arantii. Four had extrahepatic porto-left renal venous (PRV) shunt. Nine neonates presented with intrahepatic porto-hepatic venous (PV) shunts associated with or without multiple hepatic hemangiomas. At diagnosis, ...

Purpose: : Diabetic dogs rapidly form bilateral sugar cataracts within one year of diagnosis. Similar cataracts rapidly form in galactosemic dogs where they can be reduced in a dose-dependent manner with the aldose reductase inhibitor (ARI) 6-fluoro-2,3-dihydro-2-methyl-(2R,4S)-spiro[4H-1-benzo-pyran-4,4-imidazolidine]-2,5-dione (2MS). Since this compound is not commercially available, the compound is obtained in 3% overall yield through an established 11 step synthesis. The purpose of this study was to develop a more rapid synthesis of this compound and evaluate the ability of this compound to reduce sugar cataract when topically applied to diabetic dogs. Methods: : Starting with the synthetic procedures as outlined by Ueda et al (Fr. Demande, 1982), and Dirlam et al. (J.Org. Chem., 1987) synthetic modifications were conducted by replacing chymotrypsin resolution with a selective crystallization. A new stereochemical synthesis was subsequently developed which utilized a catalytic ...
