  • Impairment of the human enzyme galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase (GALT) results in the potentially lethal disorder galactosemia; the biochemical basis of pathophysiology in galactosemia remains unknown. We have applied a yeast expression system for human GALT to test the hypothesis that genotype will correlate with GALT activity measured in vitro and with metabolite levels and galactose sensitivity measured in vivo. In particular, we have determined the relative degree of functional… CONTINUE READING
