Analysis of pyrimidine synthesis "de novo" intermediates in urine and dried urine filter- paper strips with HPLC-electrospray tandem mass spectrometry. (1/21)

BACKGROUND: The concentrations of the pyrimidine "de novo" metabolites and their degradation products in urine are useful indicators for the diagnosis of an inborn error of the pyrimidine de novo pathway or a urea-cycle defect. Until now, no procedure was available that allowed the analysis of all of these metabolites in a single analytical run. We describe a rapid, specific method to measure these metabolites by HPLC-tandem mass spectrometry. METHODS: Urine or urine-soaked filter-paper strips were used to measure N-carbamyl-aspartate, dihydroorotate, orotate, orotidine, uridine, and uracil. Reversed-phase HPLC was combined with electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry, and detection was performed by multiple-reaction monitoring. Stable-isotope-labeled reference compounds were used as internal standards. RESULTS: All pyrimidine de novo metabolites and their degradation products were measured within a single analytical run of 14 min with lower limits of detection of 0.4-3 micromol/L. The intra- and interassay variation for urine with added compounds was 1.2-5% for urines and 2-9% for filter-paper extracts of the urines. Recoveries of the added metabolites were 97-106% for urine samples and 97-115% for filter-paper extracts of the urines. Analysis of urine samples from patients with a urea-cycle defect or pyrimidine degradation defect showed an aberrant metabolic profile when compared with controls. CONCLUSION: HPLC with electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry allows rapid testing for disorders affecting the pyrimidine de novo pathway. The use of filter-paper strips could facilitate collection, transport, and storage of urine samples.  (+info)

Clinical consequences of urea cycle enzyme deficiencies and potential links to arginine and nitric oxide metabolism. (2/21)

Urea cycle disorders (UCD) are human conditions caused by the dysregulation of nitrogen transfer from ammonia nitrogen into urea. The biochemistry and the genetics of these disorders were well elucidated. Earlier diagnosis and improved treatments led to an emerging, longer-lived cohort of patients. The natural history of some of these disorders began to point to pathophysiological processes that may be unrelated to the primary cause of acute morbidity and mortality, i.e., hyperammonemia. Carbamyl phosphate synthetase I single nucleotide polymorphisms may be associated with altered vascular resistance that becomes clinically relevant when specific environmental stressors are present. Patients with argininosuccinic aciduria due to a deficiency of argininosuccinic acid lyase are uniquely prone to chronic hepatitis, potentially leading to cirrhosis. Moreover, our recent observations suggest that there may be an increased prevalence of essential hypertension. In contrast, hyperargininemia found in patients with arginase 1 deficiency is associated with pyramidal tract findings and spasticity, without significant hyperammonemia. An intriguing potential pathophysiological link is the dysregulation of intracellular arginine availability and its potential effect on nitric oxide (NO) metabolism. By combining detailed natural history studies with the development of tissue-specific null mouse models for urea cycle enzymes and measurement of nitrogen flux through the cycle to urea and NO in UCD patients, we may begin to dissect the contribution of different sources of arginine to NO production and the consequences on both rare genetic and common multifactorial diseases.  (+info)

Neonatal argininosuccinic aciduria with normal brain and kidney but absent liver argininosuccinate lyase activity. (3/21)

An infant is described who died at 6 days of age with hyperammonemia and argininosuccinic acid in the urine. Argininosuccinic acid lyase (AL) was absent in liver, decreased in red blood cells, but normal in brain and kidney. The instability of AL in frozen stored tissues accounts for previous reports of deficient AL activity in the brain and kidney of neonates with this disease. The variation of AL activity in the tissues of this patient demonstrates that more than one gene locus either codes for the structure of this enzyme or regulates its biosynthesis in different organs.  (+info)

Contrasting features of urea cycle disorders in human patients and knockout mouse models. (4/21)

The urea cycle exists for the removal of excess nitrogen from the body. Six separate enzymes comprise the urea cycle, and a deficiency in any one of them causes a urea cycle disorder (UCD) in humans. Arginase is the only urea cycle enzyme with an alternate isoform, though no known human disorder currently exists due to a deficiency in the second isoform. While all of the UCDs usually present with hyperammonemia in the first few days to months of life, most disorders are distinguished by a characteristic profile of plasma amino acid alterations that can be utilized for diagnosis. While enzyme assay is possible, an analysis of the underlying mutation is preferable for an accurate diagnosis. Mouse models for each of the urea cycle disorders exist (with the exception of NAGS deficiency), and for almost all of them, their clinical and biochemical phenotypes rather closely resemble the phenotypes seen in human patients. Consequently, all of the current mouse models are highly useful for future research into novel pharmacological and dietary treatments and gene therapy protocols for the management of urea cycle disorders.  (+info)

Argininosuccinic aciduria: clinical and biochemical phenotype findings in Malaysian children. (8/21)

Argininosuccinic aciduria is an inborn error of the urea cycle caused by deficiency of argininosuccinate lyase (ASL). ASL-deficient patients present with progressive intoxication due to accumulation of ammonia in the body. Early diagnosis and treatment of hyperammonemia are necessary to improve survival and prevent long-term handicap. Two clinical phenotypes have been recognized--neonatal acute and milder late-onset form. We investigated patients with hyperammonemia by a stepwise approach in which quantitative amino acids analysis was the core diagnostic procedure. Here, we describe the clinical phenotypes and biochemical characteristics in diagnosing this group of patients. We have identified 13 patients with argininosuccinic aciduria from 2003 till 2009. Ten patients who presented with acute neonatal hyperammonemic encephalopathy had markedly elevated blood ammonia (> 430 micromol/L) within the first few days of life. Three patients with late-onset disease had more subtle clinical presentations and they developed hyperammonemia only during the acute catabolic state at two to twelve months of age. Their blood ammonia was mild to moderately elevated (> 75-265 micromol/L). The diagnosis was confirmed by detection of excessive levels of argininosuccinate in the urine and/or plasma. They also have moderately increased levels of citrulline and, low levels of arginine and ornithine in their plasma. Two patients succumbed to the disease. To date, eleven patients remained well on a dietary protein restriction, oral ammonia scavenging drugs and arginine supplementation. The majority of them have a reasonable good neurological outcome.  (+info)

Argininosuccinate lyase deficiency (ASLD; also known as argininosuccinic aciduria) is the second most common urea cycle disorder (UCD) and accounts for 15-20% of all disorders of ureagenesis. Individuals with ASLD can have unique clinical and physiologic characteristics as compared to other UCDs. Previous work from the members of the UCDC have shown that in spite of having fewer episodes of hyperammonemia as compared to those with proximal blockade of the urea cycle, individuals with ASLD can develop intellectual and learning disabilities. Neurocognitive deficits have been observed even in individuals without any documented hyperammonemia. Furthermore, hepatic abnormalities including hepatomegaly, hepatic injury, fibrosis and even frank cirrhosis, and vascular issues like hypertension are well known in the disorder. Previous work from the members of the UCDC has demonstrated a tissue- and molecular-specific role for ASL in the generation of NO. ASL is not only required for the synthesis of ...
Treatment may require the coordinated efforts of a team of specialists. Pediatricians, neurologists, geneticists, dieticians, and physicians who are familiar with metabolic disorders may need to work together to ensure a comprehensive approach to treatment. Occupational, speech language, and physical therapists may be needed to treat children with developmental disabilities. Genetic counseling is recommended for affected individuals and their families.. The treatment of argininosuccinic aciduria is aimed at preventing excessive ammonia from being formed or from removing excessive ammonia during a hyperammonemic episode. Long-term therapy combines dietary restrictions and the stimulation of alternative methods of converting and excreting nitrogen from the body (alternative pathways therapy).. Dietary restrictions in individuals with argininosuccinic aciduria are aimed at limiting the amount of protein intake to avoid the development of excess ammonia. However, enough protein must be taken in by ...

AAUCD : Urea cycle disorders (UCD) are a group of inherited disorders of nitrogen detoxification that result when any of the enzymes in the urea cycle (carbamoylphosphate synthetase I: CPS I; ornithine transcarbamylase: OTC; argininosuccinic acid synthetase; argininosuccinic acid lyase; arginase; or the cofactor producer, N-acetyl glutamate synthetase: NAGS), have deficient or reduced activity. The role of the urea cycle is to metabolize and clear waste nitrogen, and defects in any of the steps of the pathway can result in an accumulation of ammonia, which can be toxic to the nervous system. The urea cycle is also responsible for endogenous production of the amino acids citrulline, ornithine, and arginine. Infants with a complete urea cycle enzyme deficiency typically appear normal at birth, but present with in the neonatal period as ammonia levels rise with lethargy, seizures, hyper- or hypoventilation, and ultimately coma or death. Individuals with partial enzyme deficiency may present later in life,

Adenylosuccinate lyase (ASL) catalyzes 2 reactions in the de novo synthesis of purine nucleotides. In humans, point mutations of this enzyme are associated with mental retardation, autism, and muscle wasting. The sequence of B. subtilis ASL is 27% identical and 17% similar to the human enzyme. We have cloned, expressed, and purified B. subtilis ASL; the crystal structure of a 73% homologous bacterial enzyme is known (PDB #lc3u). We separately mutated 2 amino acids in the B. subtilis ASL (M10L & N276C) equivalent to the mutations identified in human ASL deficiency (M26L & R303C). The purified M10L and N276C possess specific activities of 0.86 and 0.38 units/mg, respectively, as compared to 1.56 units/mg for wild type (WT) enzyme. Both enzymes are similar to WT in conformation and oligomeric state as indicated by circular dichroism and light scattering.

17α-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase deficiency is caused by mutations in the CYP17A1 gene. The protein produced from this gene is involved in the formation of steroid hormones. This group of hormones includes sex hormones such as testosterone and estrogen, which are needed for normal sexual development and reproduction; mineralocorticoids, which help regulate the bodys salt and water balance; and glucocorticoids, which are involved in maintaining blood sugar levels and regulating the bodys response to stress.. Steroid hormones are produced through a series of chemical reactions. The CYP17A1 enzyme performs two important reactions in this process. The enzyme has 17 alpha(α)-hydroxylase activity, which is important for production of glucocorticoids and sex hormones. CYP17A1 also has 17,20-lyase activity, which is integral to the production of sex hormones.. 17α-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase deficiency results from a shortage (deficiency) of both enzyme activities. The amount of remaining enzyme activity ...

So now there are 21 proteogenic amino acids…right?. Actually, there are 22 of them discovered till now. The last one is named Pyrrolysine, but it makes proteins only in prokaryotes (methanogenic archaea and bacteria).. So is there any other amino acids that are not PROTEOGENIC?. The proteogenic pool of amino acid is only a small part of the whole amino acid pool. There are many times more amino acids that dont produce proteins. Usually, the amino acids that dont have any associated genetic code wont produce proteins (they cant take part in translation), and so are non-proteogenic.. This is quite logical. Any organic molecule having at least one of each amine and carboxyl group can be called an amino acid and we have only limited number of genetic codes.. Examples of non-proteogenic amino acids are - ornithine, citrulline etc. in hepatic metabolism. The argininosuccinic acid in the urea cycle, S-adenosylmethionine, azaserine in streptomycin, synthetically produced (at least commercially) ...
Although accumulating evidence highlights the importance of p53-mediated metabolism in tumor suppression (2, 47), the mechanisms by which p53 drives dynamic nutrient status in harmony with canonical p53 functions remain poorly understood. Here, we show that p53 activates the penultimate step of de novo arginine synthesis pathway through the direct induction of the rate-limiting enzyme ASS1. Furthermore, we demonstrate that ASS1 deficiency induced anomalous Akt phosphorylation, resulting in rendering cells more susceptible to genotoxic stress.. Although we have demonstrated that p53 drives the de novo arginine synthesis pathway via ASS1 induction under genotoxic conditions, argininosuccinate lyase (ASL), which directly produces arginine from argininosuccinate, was not induced by p53 in HCT116 cells. These results suggest that ASS1 is the sole node connecting p53 to the de novo arginine synthesis pathway. Because ASS1 is a rate-limiting enzyme of the de novo arginine synthesis pathway, ASS1 ...

Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) comprise a group of over 600 disorders, each with a specific metabolic impairment due to a genetic defect. Urea cycle disorders (UCD) are IEM that affect the nitrogen disposal system, leading to hyperammonemia and the accumulation of other toxic metabolites in tissues of affected patients. UCD arise from mutations in the genes coding any of the enzymes participating in the urea cycle, either directly or as regulators of this pathway, causing severe respiratory alkalosis. Considering that the exact mechanisms underlying the damage found in UCD, the purpose of this minireview is to obtain data and search for links between UCD and oxidative stress, a phenomenon common to several IEM ...

Citrullinemia type I is an autosomal recessive disorder that is caused by a deficiency of the urea cycle enzyme argininosuccinate synthetase (ASS1). Deficiency of ASS1 shows various clinical manifestations encompassing severely affected patients with fatal neonatal hyperammonemia as well as asymptomatic individuals with only a biochemical phenotype. This is a comprehensive report of all 87 mutations found to date in the ASS1 gene on chromosome 9q34.1. A large proportion of the mutations (n=27) are described here for the first time. Mutations are distributed throughout exons 3 to 15, most of them being identified in exons 5, 12, 13, and 14. The mutation G390R in exon 15 is the single most common mutation in patients with the classical phenotype. Certain mutations clearly link to specific clinical courses but the clinical phenotype cannot be anticipated in all patients. This update presents a survey of the correlation between mutations in the ASS1 gene and the respective clinical courses as ...

A urea cycle disorder (UCD) is a genetic (hereditary) disorder caused by a mutation (alteration) in a gene that results in one of the six enzymes in the urea cycle in the liver to not work properly. The urea cycle changes waste ammonia, which is potentially toxic (poisonous), to a compound called urea which is then removed from the body in the urine.. In UCDs, one of the enzymes in the cycle does not work properly. Without all the enzymes working as they should, the process cant be completed and ammonia builds up in the blood, a process called Hyperammonemia. This process can lead to a Hyperammonemic crisis (HAC) which is a highly toxic condition and can cause a range of behavioral problems and other symptoms.

The National Urea Cycle Disorders Foundation is lifeline of information and support for all those affected by urea cycle disorders. NUCDF is nonprofit organization committed to saving the lives of children and adults with urea cycle disorder. NUCDF is the leader in the identification, treatment and cure of urea cycle disorders; raising awareness, supporting urea cycle disorder research and creating a caring community for patients and families.
Urea cycle disorders are caused by enzyme defects in the Urea cycle (WP4571). The diseases are characterised by hyperammonemia, respiratory alkalosis and encephalopathy and the severity of the disease depends on the severity of the defect and the place of the defect in the cycle. Severe forms usually have an onset in infancy, while mild forms can also present in adulthood. The diagnosis of Urea cycle disorders is based on altered concentrations of different metabolic biochemical markers. Some of these markers are metabolites in Urea cycle, but there are also several other markers, that are either indirectly or not related to the Urea cycle. All metabolic markers used for the diagnosis of at least one Urea cycle disorder and their relations are visualized in this pathway. Biochemical markers derived from http://www.iembase.org/, for all diseases pictured in WP4571. ...

I know from professional staff who work for UC Med that doctors are under pressure to increase their case loads, and this shows in the long waits for appointments. And the scheduling of appointments is chaotic with lots of waiting: waiting for someone to answer the phone (20 minutes on hold is typical), waiting days for someone to return your message to the on-line scheduling system, waiting for them to correct the appointment they made at an arbitrary time when youve told them you cant come.
