OMIA 000578-9685 : Krabbe disease in Felis catus
In other species: Rhesus monkey , dog , sheep Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 245200 (trait) Mendelian trait/disorder: yes Considered a defect: yes Key variant known: no Cross-species summary: Also known as globoid cell leukodystrophy (GLD), galactosylceramide lipidosis, galactocerebrosidase deficiency, GALC deficiency, globoid cell leukoencephalopathy, galactosylceramide beta-galactosidase deficiency. A lysosomal storage disease in which there is a buildup (storage) of myelin, due to the lack of the enzyme galactosylceramidase (galactocerebrosidase), whose task is to break down myelin into its constituent molecules. Characterised by weakness progressing to paralysis.
