Galactokinase is determined by using RBCs (as is GALT). Radiolabeled galactose is incubated in the appropriate buffer with adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and red cell lysate. Galactose-1-phosphate (the product of the action of galactokinase on galactose and ATP) is quantitated after it is bound to ion-exchange chromatography paper.(Beutler E, Paniker NV, Trinidad F: The assay of red cell galactokinase.
