AU - Jansma, B.M.. AU - Roebroeck, A.. AU - Rubio-Gozalbo, M.E.. PY - 2015/1/1. Y1 - 2015/1/1. 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 ...

1I3M: MOLECULAR BASIS FOR SEVERE EPIMERASE-DEFICIENCY GALACTOSEMIA: X-RAY STRUCTURE OF THE HUMAN V94M-SUBSTITUTED UDP-GALACTOSE 4-EPIMERASE
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 ...
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 ...
Ang Lactose sa pagkain ng mga produktong gatas ay nasisira ng enzyme enzyme na lactase tungo sa glucose at galactose. Sa mga indibidwal na may galactosemia, ang mga enzyme na kailangan para sa karagdagang metabolismo ng galactose ay malalang nabawasan o buong nawala na humahantong sa mga nakalalasong lebel ng galactose 1-phosphate sa ibat ibang mga tisyu gaya ng sa kaso ng klasikong galactosemia. Ito ay nagreresulta sa hepatomegaly (lumaking atay), cirrhosis, pagkabigo ng bato, mga katarata, pinsala sa utak, at pagkabigo ng obaryo. Kapag hindi nagamot, ang kamatayan sa mga sanggol na may galactosemia ay mga 75%..

This fibroblast cell line was established by W.J. Mellman from a skin biopsy of a 6-year-old Black male with galactosemia. This child demonstrated a classic galactosemia picture in infancy and lacks galactose-1-phosphate uridyl transferase activity in his circulating red cells. His older sibling (W.W.) lacks the same enzyme but exhibited no clinical symptoms of galactosemia. [Cell line CHP4, ATCC CCL-133]
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 ...
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.

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 ...
