Various methods have been devised to quantify RBC Gal-1-P, which can be divided into three types: one involves measuring the product Glu-1-P formed after the addition of GALT (8, 9); the second involves measuring UDPG consumed in the reaction with Gal-1-P (7); the third involves the use of galactose dehydrogenase to measure galactose liberated after alkaline phosphatase treatment of hemolysates (10, 11).
In addition, in a study in which the UDPG consumption assay was used to monitor galactosemic patients, there was no statistical difference in concentrations between fasted and nonfasted patients (3).
The amount of 14C incorporated into the glycogen from UDPG during the incubation period was measured in a liquid scintillation counter.
