Human biotinidase isn't just for recycling biotin. (1/38)

For years, the major role of biotin has been as the coenzyme for four carboxylases in humans. Although there has been evidence that biotin might have other functions, none has been firmly established. The discovery that human serum biotinidase has biotinyl-transferase activity, in addition to biotinidase hydrolase activity, presents new possibilities for the role of biotinidase in biotin metabolism. Specific transfer of biotin to histones by biotinidase provides a possible explanation for why biotin is found in the nucleus and the nature of its role in the regulation of protein transcription. Future studies will help to determine the functions of biotinidase in biotin metabolism and in disease states.  (+info)

Regulation of leukocyte adherence and migration by glycosylphosphatidyl-inositol-anchored proteins. (2/38)

Leukocyte extravasation is essential for subsequent inflammation and the immune response. Extravasation can be divided into at least three steps; rolling, firm adhesion, and transendothelial migration. Although the mechanisms involved in the first two steps have been fairly well documented, the last step is complex and largely remains to be clarified. This review focuses on the possible role of GPI-anchored proteins on leukocytes in the regulation of their transendothelial migration. In addition to regulation by urokinase and its receptor, which has been regarded as the main modulator, we draw attention to a novel GPI-anchored protein (GPI-80) on human phagocytes that may be involved in regulating leukocyte adhesion and migration. The high degree of homology of GPI-80 with vanin-1, which is expressed on vascular tissues and is involved in prethymic cell homing into the thymus, raises the possibility that there is a family of molecules, including GPI-80 and vanin-1, that may be involved in leukocyte transendothelial migration. The possible role of soluble GPI-anchored proteins in this process is also discussed.  (+info)

Is pantetheinase the actual identity of mouse and human vanin-1 proteins? (3/38)

Pantetheinase is an amidohydrolase involved in the dissimilative pathway of CoA, allowing the turnover of the pantothenate moiety. We have determined the N-terminal sequence as well as the sequences of a number of tryptic and chymotryptic peptides of the protein isolated from pig kidney. These sequence stretches were used as probes to search in the SwissProt database and significant similarities were found with a GPI-anchored protein (mouse vanin-1, with a suggested role in lymphocyte migration), with two putative proteins encoded by human cDNAs (VNN1 and VNN2) and with human biotinidase. On the basis of sequence similarity, we propose that vanin-1 and VNN1 should be identified as pantetheinase.  (+info)

Fine mapping of the human biotinidase gene and haplotype analysis of five common mutations. (4/38)

Biotinidase deficiency is an autosomal recessive defect in the recycling of biotin that can lead to a variety of neurologic and cutaneous symptoms. The disease can be prevented or effectively treated with exogenous biotin. The biotinidase locus (BTD) has been maped to 3p25 by in situ hybridization. The gene has been cloned, the coding region sequenced, the genomic organization determined, and a spectrum of mutations has been characterized in more than 90 individuals with profound or partial biotinidase deficiency. We have conducted haplotype analysis of 10 consanguineous and 39 nonconsanguineous probands from the United States and 8 consanguineous probands from Turkey to localize BTD with respect to polymorphic markers on 3p and to investigate the origins of five common mutations. The inbred probands were homozygous for overlapping regions of 3p ranging in size from 1.1 to 80 cM which were flanked most narrowly by D3S1259 and D3S1293. Radiation hybrids and haplotype analysis of markers within this region suggest that BTD is located within a 0.1-cM region flanked by D3S3510 and D3S1286. The radiation hybrid data suggest that the BTD gene is oriented 5' to 3' between the centromere and the 3p telomere. Association studies indicate that the gene is closer to a third locus D3S3613 than D3S3510, two markers which cannot be resolved by existing linkage data. The BTD locus and D3S3613 must therefore lie between D3S3510 and D3S1286. Comparison of haplotypes reveals evidence for possible founder effects for four of the five common mutations.  (+info)

Molecular characterisation of 34 patients with biotinidase deficiency ascertained by newborn screening and family investigation. (5/38)

This study characterises the spectrum of biotinidase mutations in 21 patients (17 families) with profound biotinidase deficiency (BD) and 13 unrelated patients with partial BD using a denaturing gradient gel electrophoretic mutation screening and selective sequencing approach. In 29 from 30 unrelated families we found biallelic mutations including four common mutations, D444H (frequency 23.3%), G98:d7i3(20.0%), Q456H(20.0%), T532M (15.0%) and nine rare mutations (V62M, R157H, A171T+D444H, C423W, D543H, L279W, N172S, V109G, 12236G-A) with frequencies less than 5.0%. Only three profound BD patients with G98:d7i3/G98:d7i3 and Q456H/Q456H genotypes and residual biotinidase activities of 0.0%, and 0.9% of normal activity developed clinical symptoms before biotin supplementation at 8 weeks of age. All other patients remained asymptomatic within the first months of life or even longer without treatment. Two patients homozygous for the frameshift mutation G98:d7i3 had no measurable residual enzyme activity. Twelve patients with partial BD had the D444H mutation in at least one allele. We conclude that, based on mutation analysis and biochemical examinations of the enzyme, it is currently not clearly predictable whether an untreated patient will develop symptoms or not, although it seems that patients with activities lower than 1% are at a high risk for developing symptoms of the disease early in life.  (+info)

Biotinylation of histones in human cells. Effects of cell proliferation. (6/38)

An enzymatic mechanism has been proposed by which biotinidase may catalyze biotinylation of histones. Here, human cells were found to covalently bind biotin to histones H1, H2A, H2B, H3, and H4. Cells respond to proliferation with increased biotinylation of histones; biotinylation increases early in the cell cycle and remains increased during the cycle. Notwithstanding the catalytic role of biotinidase in biotinylation of histones, mRNA encoding biotinidase and biotinidase activity did not parallel the increased biotinylation of histones in proliferating cells. Biotinylation of histones might be regulated by enzymes other than biotinidase or by the rate of histone debiotinylation.  (+info)

Biotin dependency due to a defect in biotin transport. (7/38)

We describe a 3-year-old boy with biotin dependency not caused by biotinidase, holocarboxylase synthetase, or nutritional biotin deficiency. We sought to define the mechanism of his biotin dependency. The child became acutely encephalopathic at age 18 months. Urinary organic acids indicated deficiency of several biotin-dependent carboxylases. Symptoms improved rapidly following biotin supplementation. Serum biotinidase activity and Biotinidase gene sequence were normal. Activities of biotin-dependent carboxylases in PBMCs and cultured skin fibroblasts were normal, excluding biotin holocarboxylase synthetase deficiency. Despite extracellular biotin sufficiency, biotin withdrawal caused recurrent abnormal organic aciduria, indicating intracellular biotin deficiency. Biotin uptake rates into fresh PBMCs from the child and into his PBMCs transformed with Epstein Barr virus were about 10% of normal fresh and transformed control cells, respectively. For fresh and transformed PBMCs from his parents, biotin uptake rates were consistent with heterozygosity for an autosomal recessive genetic defect. Increased biotin breakdown was ruled out, as were artifacts of biotin supplementation and generalized defects in membrane permeability for biotin. These results provide evidence for a novel genetic defect in biotin transport. This child is the first known with this defect, which should now be included in the identified causes of biotin dependency.  (+info)

PCR designer for restriction analysis of various types of sequence mutation. (8/38)

Restriction analysis is widely used to detect gene mutations such as insertions, deletions and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Although such mutation sites sometimes present some natural restriction sites to differentiate the wild-type and mutant sequences, mismatches are often needed in order to create artificial restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs). In this report, a computer program is described that screens for suitable restriction enzymes, introducing mismatches where appropriate and when necessary, designs primers using the information of the selected restriction enzymes, their recognition sequence and locations as well as the information about the mismatches if any. The program, supported by a WWW web interface, is intended to be used online.  (+info)

Biotinidase deficiency is a rare inherited metabolic disorder that can cause severe neurological symptoms. To prevent severe clinical presentations, it was included in the Dutch neonatal screening programme in 2007. Since then the number of cases detected has been high. This study set out to describe the incidence of the disease, the clinical and demographic characteristics of the neonates identified and the type of mutations found. In the south-western Netherlands, 304 982 neonates were screened between 2007 and 2012; and 92 were identified for further testing. Confirmatory testing revealed 6 (7%) with a profound biotinidase deficiency (|10% enzyme activity), 44 (48%) with a partial deficiency (10-30%) and 42 (46%) with normal activity (|30%). All six patients whose profound deficiency was confirmed had enzyme activities below 15% on neonatal screening. Mutation analysis was performed in 61 neonates: 5 profound, 35 partial and 21 normal. All five profound cases had two severe mutations.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Epigenetic regulation of chromatin structure and gene function by biotin. AU - Hassan, Yousef I.. AU - Zempleni, Janos. PY - 2006/7/6. Y1 - 2006/7/6. N2 - Covalent modifications of histones are a crucial component of epigenetic events that regulate chromatin structures and gene function. Evidence exists that distinct lysine residues in histones are modified by covalent attachment of the vitamin biotin, catalyzed by biotinidase and holocarboxylase synthetase. Biotinylation of histones appears to be conserved across species. The following biotinylation sites were identified using both MS and enzymatic biotinylation of synthetic peptides: K9, K13, K125, K127, and K129 in histone H2A; K4, K9, and K18 in histone H3; and K8 and K12 in histone H4. Evidence was provided that biotinylated histone H4 is enriched in pericentromeric heterochromatin, and that biotinylation of histone H4 participates in gene silencing, mitotic condensation of chromatin, and the cellular response to DNA damage. ...

Biotinidase deficiency is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder in which biotin is not released from proteins in the diet during digestion or from normal protein turnover in the cell. This situation results in biotin deficiency. Biotin, also called vitamin B7, is an important water-soluble nutrient that aids in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Biotin deficiency can result in behavioral disorders, lack of coordination, learning disabilities and seizures. Biotin supplementation can alleviate and sometimes totally stop such symptoms. Signs and symptoms of a biotinidase deficiency can appear several days after birth. These include seizures, hypotonia and muscle/limb weakness, ataxia, paresis, hearing loss, optic atrophy, skin rashes (including seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis), and alopecia. If left untreated, the disorder can rapidly lead to coma and death. Biotinidase deficiency can also appear later in life. This is referred to as late-onset biotinidase deficiency. ...

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is caused by a defect in the conversion of the amino acid phenylalanine (Phe) to tyrosine (Tyr). Without treatment, patients develop mental retardation. Inclusion of the Phe/Tyr ratio has decreased the number of false positive screening outcomes to the present PPV of 0.92 without any known missed cases. The recall levels have been lowered several times since the start of screening. An increase in the incidence of patients with milder disease has been observed with time. We were able to show that the impact of the adjusted recall levels was low. Instead, milder genetic variants, which are more common in Southern Europe, are found more often, which is an effect of the large number of non-Nordic immigrants who have come to Sweden during the last 25 years. The immigration has widened the spectrum of detected pathogenic variants ...

U.S., Feb. 27 -- ClinicalTrials.gov registry received information related to the study (NCT03034707) titled Interference of Biotin Supplementation in Biotin-streptavidin Platforms for Hormone Testing on Jan. 17. Brief Summary: The B vitamin biotin is widely available as an over the counter supplement, often advertised and used to promote health of hair, skin and nails. Commercially available over the counter biotin supplements contain dose ranges up to 10 mg/day (ie 333 times higher than the recommended dietary allowance). The biotin molecule is also sometimes used as part of the lab technology to measure hormone and protein levels in the blood. It is possible that high doses of ingested biotin may interfere with accurate hormone or protein measurement using biotin related in vitro measurement systems. Such interference, if present, could lead to misdiagnosis. The study will analyze laboratory levels obtained with streptavidin-biotin assay systems while ingesting biotin in currently available ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Clustering of mutations in the biotin-binding region of holocarboxylase synthetase in biotin-responsive multiple carboxylase deficiency. AU - Dupuis, Lucie. AU - Leon-Del-Rio, Alfonso. AU - Leclerc, Daniel. AU - Campeau, Eric. AU - Sweetman, Lawrence. AU - Saudubray, Jean Marie. AU - Herman, Gail. AU - Gibson, K. Michael. AU - Gravel, Roy A.. PY - 1996/7. Y1 - 1996/7. N2 - Holocarboxylase synthetase (HCS) catalyses the biotinylation of the four biotin-dependent carboxylases found in humans. A deficiency in HCS results in biotin-responsive multiple carboxylase deficiency (MCD). We have identified six different point mutations in the HCS gene in nine patients with MCD. Two of the mutations are frequent among the MCD patients analyzed. Four of the mutations cluster in the putative biotin-binding domain as deduced from the corresponding Escherichia coli enzyme and consistent with an explanation for biotin-responsiveness based on altered affinity for biotin. The two others may define ...

Acts as NAD-dependent protein lipoamidase, ADP-ribosyl transferase and deacetylase. Catalyzes more efficiently removal of lipoyl- and biotinyl- than acetyl-lysine modifications. Inhibits the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDH) activity via the enzymatic hydrolysis of the lipoamide cofactor from the E2 component, DLAT, in a phosphorylation-independent manner (PubMed:25525879). Catalyzes the transfer of ADP-ribosyl groups onto target proteins, including mitochondrial GLUD1, inhibiting GLUD1 enzyme activity. Acts as a negative regulator of mitochondrial glutamine metabolism by mediating mono ADP-ribosylation of GLUD1: expressed in response to DNA damage and negatively regulates anaplerosis by inhibiting GLUD1, leading to block metabolism of glutamine into tricarboxylic acid cycle and promoting cell cycle arrest (PubMed:16959573, PubMed:17715127). In response to mTORC1 signal, SIRT4 expression is repressed, promoting anaplerosis and cell proliferation. Acts as a tumor suppressor (PubMed:23562301, PubMed

TUESDAY, Aug. 11, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- A growing number of older people are turning to the vitamin biotin to fortify their aging skin, hair and nails.. But a new study shows how large doses of it can interfere with some vital medical tests.. Biotin, or vitamin B7, is an essential nutrient. And there is no issue with the lower doses found in multivitamins, said study author Danni Li, an associate professor of laboratory medicine and pathology at the University of Minnesota.. But high doses of biotin can cause falsely low results in a blood test that measures the protein troponin -- which is used to help diagnose heart attacks. In 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a safety alert on the issue.. It hasnt been clear, though, how popular high-dose biotin use is. So Li and her colleagues looked into the question, using data from a long-running U.S. health survey.. The researchers found that high-dose biotin supplements have risen from obscurity to become notably more popular in ...
Author Summary Eukaryotic DNA is packaged into chromatin through its association with histone proteins. The linker histone H1 sits at the base of the nucleosome near the DNA entry and exit sites to stabilize two full turns of DNA. In particular, histone H1 participates in nucleosome spacing and formation of the higher-order chromatin structure. In addition, H1 seems to be actively involved in the regulation of gene expression. Histone H1 in mammals is a family of closely related, single-gene encoded proteins, including five somatic subtypes (from H1.1 to H1.5) and a terminally differentiated expressed isoform (H1.0). It is not well known whether the different variants have distinct roles or if they regulate specific promoters. We have explored this by inducible knock-down of each of the H1 variants in breast cancer cells. A different subset of genes is altered in each H1 knock-down, and depletion has different effects on cell survival. Interestingly, H1.2 and H1.4 depletion specifically caused arrest of
