  • Pathway
    Carbohydrate metabolism; galactose metabolism.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in GALT are the cause of galactosemia (GALCT) [MIM:230400]. Galactosemia is an inherited disorder of galactose metabolism that causes jaundice, cataracts, and mental retardation.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase type 1 family.

  • Predicted band size : 43 kDa

    Lanes 1, 3 and 5: GALT knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)

    Lanes 2, 4 and 6: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)

    Lanes 1 and 2: Green signal from target – ab178406 observed at 43 kDa

    Lanes 3 and 4: Red signal from loading control – ab8245 observed at 37 kDa

    Lanes 5 and 6: Merged (red and green) signal

    ab178406 was shown to react with GALT when GALT knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and GALT knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab178406 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted 1/1000 and 1/2000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4ºC. Blots were developed withGoat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW)preadsorbed (ab216773) and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216776)secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.
