Abstract

Allelic heterogeneity is an important feature of the GLA gene for which almost 900 known genetic variants have been discovered so far. Pathogenetic GLA variants cause alpha-galactosidase A (α-Gal A) enzyme deficiency leading to the X-linked lysosomal storage disorder Fabry disease (FD). Benign GLA intronic and exonic variants (e.g. pseudodeficient p.Asp313Tyr) have also been described. Some GLA missense variants, previously deemed to be pathogenetic (e.g. p.Glu66Gln and p.Arg118Cys), they have been reclassified as benign after re-evaluation by functional and population studies. Hence, the functional role of novel GLA variants should be investigated to assess their clinical relevance.
