Rapid method for screening for galactosemia and galactokinase deficiency by measuring galactose in whole blood spotted on paper.


Two major metabolic disorders are associated with galactose metabolism: galactokinase (ATP : D-galactose1-phosphotransferase, EC deficiency and galactosemia (1) secondary to a deficiency in galactose-i-phosphate uridyl transferase (UTP: a-D-galactose-i-phosphate uridyltransferase, EC activity. One case reported in 1972 (2) described a… (More)
