Congenital Lactase Deficiency: Mutations, Functional and Biochemical Implications, and Future Perspectives.
Last Updated: Feb 25, 2020

Congenital lactase deficiency (CLD) is a severe autosomal recessive genetic disorder that affects the functional capacity of the intestinal protein lactase-phlorizin hydrolase (LPH). This disorder is diagnosed already during the first few days of the newborn's life due to the inability ...

Molecular differentiation of congenital lactase deficiency from adult-type hypolactasia.
Last Updated: Feb 14, 2019

A limited fraction of the human adult population retains intestinal lactase-phlorizin hydrolase (LPH) activity during adulthood, and this is called the lactase persistence phenotype. However, 95% of all adults have adult-type hypolactasia (ATH) and have difficulty digesting milk sugar. ...
