Classical or transferase-deficient galactosaemia is an inherited metabolic disorder caused by mutation in the human Galactose-1-phosphate uridyl transferase (GALT) gene. Of some 170 causative mutations reported, fewer than 10% are observed in more than one geographic region or ethnic group. To better understand the population history of the common GALT(More)
Anonymous population screening was carried out to detect the N314D, Los Angeles (D1), and Duarte (D2) alleles of the galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase gene in Ireland using 743 blood samples, covering the Traveller (n = 243) and non-Traveller (n = 500) population groups. The frequency of the N314D substitution was found to be 0.099 overall. D1 allele(More)
Transferase-deficient galactosaemia is an inherited disorder of carbohydrate metabolism, caused by mutation at the galactose-1-phosphate uridyl transferase (GALT) locus. A denaturing high performance liquid chromatography (dHPLC) method was developed for variant scanning of the GALT gene. The method unequivocally identified the Duarte D1, D2, Q188R, and(More)
