Congenital disorders of glycosylation comprise a group of genetic defects with a high frequency of intellectual disability, caused by deficient glycosylation of proteins and lipids. The molecular basis of the majority of the congenital disorders of glycosylation type I subtypes, localized in the cytosol and endoplasmic reticulum, has been solved. However,(More)
Dolichol is an obligate carrier of glycans for N-linked protein glycosylation, O-mannosylation, and GPI anchor biosynthesis. cis-prenyltransferase (cis-PTase) is the first enzyme committed to the synthesis of dolichol. However, the proteins responsible for mammalian cis-PTase activity have not been delineated. Here we show that Nogo-B receptor (NgBR) is a(More)
We report on the seventh known patient with S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase (SAHH) deficiency presenting at birth with features resembling phosphomannomutase 2 (PMM2-CDG Ia) deficiency. Plasma methionine and total homocysteine levels were normal at 2 months and increased only after the 8th month of age. SAHH deficiency was confirmed at 4.5 years of age by(More)
OBJECTIVES A 10-year-old boy presented with cleft palate, hepatopathy, cholecystolithiasis, myopathy, coagulopathy, hyperlipidemia, hypoglycemia, hyperuricemia, short stature, obesity, hypothyroidism, microcephaly and mild intellectual disability. The multi-systemic manifestation involving certain distinct clinical features prompted us to search for a(More)
RFT1-CDG is a rare N-glycosylation disorder. Only 6 children with RFT1-CDG have been described, all with failure to thrive, feeding problems, hypotonia, developmental delay, epilepsy, decreased vision, deafness and thrombotic complications. We report on two young adult siblings with RFT1-CDG, compound heterozygotes for the novel missense mutations c.1222A>G(More)
Congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG) form a group of metabolic disorders caused by deficient glycosylation of proteins and/or lipids. Isoelectric focusing (IEF) of serum transferrin is the most common screening method to detect abnormalities of protein N-glycosylation. On the basis of the IEF profile, patients can be grouped into CDG type I or CDG(More)
Apolipoprotein C-III (ApoC-III) is a glycoprotein carrying the most common O-linked glycan structure and is abundantly present in serum, what renders it a suitable marker for analysis of O-glycosylation abnormalities. Isoelectric focusing followed by a Western blot of ApoC-III, using PhastSystem™ Electrophoresis System (GE Healthcare), was introduced as a(More)
