Description

abm | GALK2+GALE Stable Knockout HEK293T Cell Line | T6152

The UDP-galactose-4 epimerase (encoded by GALE) and Galactokinase 2 (GALK2) are both major enzymes in the Leloir pathway, the primary pathway for galactose metabolism. UDP-galactose-4 epimerase modifies galactose and acetyl galactose, generating precursors for O-linked glycolsylation. Deficiencies in these genes can lead to Galactosemia: a condition that is caused by the accumulation of galactose in the blood and tissue of individuals that cannot properly metabolize the galactose in their diets. As this cell line is derived from a human source, it may be useful in the study of glycosylation and how it is affected during instances of disease.
