Leukocyte adhesion deficiency II (LAD II) is a rare congenital disease caused by defective fucosylation leading to immuno-deficiency and psychomotor retardation. We have previously identified the genetic defect of LAD II in a patient whose Golgi GDP-fucose transporter (GFTP) bears a single amino acid exchange that renders this protein nonfunctional but correctly localized to the Golgi. We now report a novel dual defect by which a truncated GFTP causes the disease in a new LAD II patient. We s...Expand abstract
