Differential Effects of D-Galactose Supplementation on Golgi Glycosylation Defects in TMEM165 Deficiency

[…] In the present study, we demonstrate the differential impact of D-Gal or MnCl2 supplementation effects on the Golgi glycosylation defects caused by TMEM165 deficiency. Whereas MnCl2 supplementation unambiguously fully rescues the N– and O-linked as well as GAG glycosylations in TMEM165-deficient cells, D-Gal supplementation only rescues the N-linked glycosylation, without any effects on the other Golgi-related glycosylation types. According to these results, we would recommend the use of MnCl2 for TMEM165-CDG therapy.
