The Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG) are a collection of over 20 inherited diseases that impair protein N-glycosylation. The clinical appearance of CDG patients is quite diverse making it difficult for physicians to recognize them. A simple blood test of transferrin glycosylation status signals a glycosylation abnormality, but not the specific defect. An abnormal trasferrin glycosylation pattern suggests that the defect is in either genes that synthesize and add the precursor glycan… CONTINUE READING
