Comment when marking as ready: Marked GAL as ready: August 3rd 2017. Red review plus no direct evidence for role of GAL in Hirschsprung disease. Therefore remaining on the panel as red/research gene only.

PMID:22325380 (Saeed et al., 2012) studied differences in gene expression between normal and abnormal segments of bowel in HD patients compared with controls, to identify novel genes in Hirschsprung disease pathway.

18th October 2017: Revised and approved to Version 1.0 after expert and curator review. An expert list from Mr. Simon Kenny and Professor Robert Hofstra's groups (Alder Hey - Erasmus MC) formed the basis of the original panel. The expert list was then expanded based on a review of literature. Many of the literature genes remain red on the V1.0 panel as they were identified through association studies and/or they represent susceptibility/risk factors for Hirschsprung's disease (HSCR). Sumita Chhabra (Alder Hey) and Erwin Brosens (Erasmus) provided extensive feedback for genes on the panel, together with reviews from Merce Garcia-Barcelo.
Mode of inheritance for GAL was changed to Unknown
This gene has been classified as Red List (Low Evidence).
