ALG8-CDG: novel patients and review of the literature.
Innsbruck, Austria. In Orphanet J Rare Dis, 2014
ALG8-CDG (= CDG-Ih) is one of the less frequently reported types of CDG, maybe due to its severe multi-organ involvement with coagulation disturbances, edema, massive gastrointestinal protein loosing enteropathy, cataracts, and often early death.
Congenital disorders of glycosylation with emphasis on cerebellar involvement.
Catania, Italy. In Semin Neurol, 2014
It has also been reported in some patients with ALG1-CDG, ALG3-CDG, ALG9-CDG, ALG6-CDG, ALG8-CDG, PIGA-CDG, DPM1-CDG, DPM2-CDG, B4GALT1-CDG, SLC35A2-CDG, COG1-CDG, COG5-CDG, COG7-CDG, and COG8-CDG.
Alginate production and alg8 gene expression by Azotobacter vinelandii in continuous cultures.
Valparaíso, Chile. In J Ind Microbiol Biotechnol, 2012
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of agitation rate and inlet sucrose concentrations (ISC) on alginate production and the expression of the genes encoding for alginate-lyases (algL) and the catalytic subunit of the alginate polymerase complex (alg8) in chemostat cultures of Azotobacter vinelandii ATCC 9046.
Congenital disorders of glycosylation: an update on defects affecting the biosynthesis of dolichol-linked oligosaccharides.
Zürich, Switzerland. In Hum Mutat, 2009
This review sets the state of the art by listing all mutations identified in the 15 genes (PMM2, MPI, DPAGT1, ALG1, ALG2, ALG3, ALG9, ALG12, ALG6, ALG8, DOLK, DPM1, DPM3, MPDU1, and RFT1) that yield a deficiency of dolichol-linked oligosaccharide biosynthesis.
A new case of ALG8 deficiency (CDG Ih).
Praha, Czech Republic. In J Inherit Metab Dis, 2009
One of them, ALG8 deficiency (CDG Ih), leads to protein N-glycosylation defects caused by malfunction of glucosyltransferase 2 (Dol-P-Glc:Glc1-Man(9)-GlcNAc(2)-P-P-Dol glucosyltransferase) resulting in inefficient addition of the second glucose residue onto lipid-linked oligosaccharides.
