Molecular pathology of Crigler-Najjar type I and II and Gilbert's syndromes. (1/55)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Crigler-Najjar syndromes type I and II and Gilbert's syndrome are familial unconjugated hyperbilirubinemias caused by genetic lesions involving a single complex locus encoding for bilirubin-UDP-glucuronosyltransferase which is involved in the detoxification of bilirubin by conjugation with glucuronic acid. Over the last few years a number of different mutations affecting this gene have been characterized. The aim of this work is to review the molecular pathology of Crigler-Najjar and Gilbert's syndromes, to discuss its impact on the clinical and genetic classification of these conditions, and on the diagnostic evaluation of clinical pictures associated with unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. EVIDENCE AND INFORMATION SOURCES: The authors of the present review are involved in the clinical management of patients with familial unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia as well as in the characterization of its molecular bases. Evidence from journal articles covered by the Science Citation Index and Medline has been reviewed and collated with personal data and experience. STATE OF THE ART AND PERSPECTIVES: It has been known for many years that mild to severe deficiency of bilirubin UDP-glucuronosyltransferase in the liver is the cause of two types of familial unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia, Crigler-Najjar syndromes I and II, and Gilbert's syndrome. Since the characterization of the gene encoding for bilirubin UDP-glucuronosyltransferase, a number of mutations affecting the expression of this gene have been identified. These mutations can be classified into three groups: mutations which result in a reduced production of a normal enzyme; mutations which give rise to the synthesis of a structurally abnormal and dysfunctional enzyme; mutations which completely abolish the expression of the affected allele. The combination of mutations affecting the coding region of the gene and of promoter mutations which reduce the expression of the gene accounts for the wide clinical spectrum of familial unconjugated hyperbilirubinemias, ranging from the clinically negligible Gilbert's syndrome to the severe and often fatal Crigler-Najjar type I syndrome. A better understanding of the genetics of these conditions and the availability of molecular diagnosis will improve the diagnostic efficiency and afford better informed genetic counseling, not only for Crigler-Najjar and Gilbert's syndromes, but also for several acquired conditions characterized by unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia.  (+info)

Auxiliary partial orthotopic liver transplantation for Crigler-Najjar syndrome type I. (2/55)

OBJECTIVE: To determine if auxiliary partial orthotopic liver transplantation (APOLT) has the long-term potential to correct the underlying abnormality in Crigler-Najjar syndrome type 1 (CNS1) without the need for total liver replacement. BACKGROUND: Orthotopic liver transplantation has been used successfully to replace the defective enzyme in CNS1. Experimental studies have shown that only 1% to 2% of the normal hepatocyte mass is needed for bilirubin conjugation. If APOLT corrects the underlying metabolic abnormality, it has the advantage of preserving the native liver, which would serve as a "safety net" should the graft fail, and there is the potential for gene therapy in the future with possible withdrawal of immunosuppression. METHODS: Seven APOLT procedures were performed in six recipients with CNS1. Median age at transplantation was 10.5 years. Six transplants were performed as a left auxiliary liver transplant, and one was performed as a right auxiliary liver transplant. Median serum bilirubin level at transplantation was 320 micromol/L. All patients required 12 to 16 hours of phototherapy daily before the transplant to maintain serum bilirubin levels between 250 and 350 micromol/L. RESULTS: Median serum bilirubin level was 50 micromol/L at day 5 after the transplant and 23 micromol/L at a median follow-up of 32 months. In four children, early severe acute rejection developed, requiring conversion to tacrolimus; one underwent a second transplant for chronic rejection and graft atrophy but died from lymphoproliferative disease 6 months after the second transplant. CONCLUSIONS: This report shows that APOLT is technically feasible and provides adequate hepatocyte mass to correct the underlying metabolic abnormality in CNS1.  (+info)

Correction of the UDP-glucuronosyltransferase gene defect in the gunn rat model of crigler-najjar syndrome type I with a chimeric oligonucleotide. (3/55)

Crigler-Najjar syndrome type I is characterized by unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia resulting from an autosomal recessive inherited deficiency of hepatic UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) 1A1 activity. The enzyme is essential for glucuronidation and biliary excretion of bilirubin, and its absence can be fatal. The Gunn rat is an excellent animal model of this disease, exhibiting a single guanosine (G) base deletion within the UGT1A1 gene. The defect results in a frameshift and a premature stop codon, absence of enzyme activity, and hyperbilirubinemia. Here, we show permanent correction of the UGT1A1 genetic defect in Gunn rat liver with site-specific replacement of the absent G residue at nucleotide 1206 by using an RNA/DNA oligonucleotide designed to promote endogenous repair of genomic DNA. The chimeric oligonucleotide was either complexed with polyethylenimine or encapsulated in anionic liposomes, administered i.v., and targeted to the hepatocyte via the asialoglycoprotein receptor. G insertion was determined by PCR amplification, colony lift hybridizations, restriction endonuclease digestion, and DNA sequencing, and confirmed by genomic Southern blot analysis. DNA repair was specific, efficient, stable throughout the 6-month observation period, and associated with reduction of serum bilirubin levels. Our results indicate that correction of the UGT1A1 genetic lesion in the Gunn rat restores enzyme expression and bilirubin conjugating activity, with consequent improvement in the metabolic abnormality.  (+info)

Stimulation of defective Gunn-rat liver uridine diphosphate glucuronyltransferase activity in vitro by alkyl ketones. (4/55)

Addition of alkyl ketone (10mM) to Gunn-rat liver homogenates increased UDP-glucuronyltransferase activity towards 2-aminophenol by 10--20 fold, up to enhanced values of enzyme activity observed with similarly treated Wistar-rat liver homogenates. Alkyl ketones also activate the defective enzyme purified from Gunn-rat liver. This genetic deficiency of UDP-glucuronyltransferase activity is no longer apparent when assayed in the presence of alkyl ketones.  (+info)

Bilirubin adsorption therapy and subsequent liver transplantation cured severe bilirubin encephalopathy in a long-term survival patient with Crigler-Najjar disease type I. (5/55)

Crigler-Najjar disease (CN) type I is characterized by persistent unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia from birth. The male patient here was diagnosed with this disease as a neonate and had been treated by phototherapy. At age 16 he suddenly developed generalized convulsions, followed by impaired cognitive function. The serum level of bilirubin was extremely high (total bilirubin: 41.7 mg/dl) and there were no other detectable causes responsible for the metabolic encephalopathy. He received bilirubin adsorption therapy several times, and the bilirubin encephalopathy improved in response to the fall in the serum level of bilirubin. After this he underwent a successful liver transplantation in Australia, and recovery of his mental faculties was satisfactory. Within the subsequent 3 years epileptic abnormal discharges on the electroencephalogram disappeared. Phototherapy alone can not prevent the rise in the serum level of bilirubin in adolescent or adult patients with CN type I, therefore such patients tend to experience life-threatening bilirubin encephalopathy. To save patients with the acute onset type of bilirubin encephalopathy, sufficient bilirubin adsorption followed by liver transplantation appears to be the most recommended therapeutic approach.  (+info)

Bile bilirubin pigment analysis in disorders of bilirubin metabolism in early infancy. (6/55)

BACKGROUND: Early and accurate diagnosis of Crigler-Najjar syndrome, which causes prolonged unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia in infancy, is important, as orthotopic liver transplantation is the definitive treatment. AIM: To determine whether bilirubin pigment analysis of bile in infants with prolonged unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia provides useful diagnostic information in the first 3 months of life. METHODS: Retrospective review of patients with prolonged unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia referred to the liver unit, Birmingham Children's Hospital, for the diagnosis of Crigler-Najjar syndrome. Bile bilirubin pigment composition was determined by high performance liquid chromatography. Initial diagnoses were made based on the result of bile bilirubin pigment composition. Final diagnoses were made after reviewing the clinical course, response to phenobarbitone, repeat bile bilirubin pigment composition analysis, and genetic studies. RESULTS: Between 1992 and 1999, nine infants aged less than 3 months of age with prolonged hyperbilirubinaemia underwent bile bilirubin pigment analyses. Based on these, two children were diagnosed with Crigler-Najjar syndrome (CNS) type 1, six with CNS type 2, and one with Gilbert's syndrome. Five children whose initial diagnosis was CNS type 2 had resolution of jaundice and normalisation of serum bilirubin after discontinuing phenobarbitone, and these cases were thought to be normal or to have Gilbert's syndrome. One of the initial cases of CNS type 1 responded to phenobarbitone with an 80% reduction in serum bilirubin consistent with CNS type 2. In all, the diagnoses of six cases needed to be reviewed. CONCLUSIONS: Early bile pigment analysis, performed during the first 3 months of life, often shows high levels of unconjugated bilirubin or bilirubin monoconjugates, leading to the incorrect diagnosis of both type 1 and type 2 Crigler-Najjar syndrome.  (+info)

Gene therapy for inherited hyperbilirubinemias. (7/55)

Crigler-Najjar syndrome type 1 (CN-1) is a potentially lethal condition, and is the only inherited disorder of bilirubin metabolism that needs treatment beyond the neonatal period. Currently, orthotopic liver transplantation is the only available cure for CN-1. Because the liver architecture is not disturbed in CN-1 and partial correction of bilirubin-UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT1A1) activity is expected to be sufficient for protection against kernicterus, cell and gene therapies are being developed using the Gunn rat as an animal model of the disease. Ex vivo gene therapy based on the transplantation of genetically manipulated hepatocytes and in vivo gene transfer using recombinant adenovirus and Simian virus 40 (SV40)-based vectors have yielded significant success. The novel strategy of in vivo site-directed mutagenesis has also resulted in modest, but significant, correction of the genetic abnormality. Newer viral and nonviral gene delivery methods are being explored and have been discussed in brief. In summary, effective gene therapy methods have been validated in Gunn rats. Despite considerable remaining hurdles, gene therapy for CN-1 could become a clinical reality by the turn of this decade.  (+info)

Postnatal development of uridine diphosphate glucuronyltransferase activity towards bilirubin and 2-aminophenol in human liver. (8/55)

UDP-glucuronyltransferase activities towards 2-aminophenol and bilirubin were studied in a total of 70 human subjects, including premature and full-term newborn babies, infants, children and adults. These two activities have been reported in rat to develop latefoetally and neonatally respectively, but in man they both develop neonatally. There is a linear relationship between the logarithm of each liver transferase activity and the logarithm of the number of days after birth during the first 3 months of life, after which each activity remains constant.  (+info)

Crigler-Najjar syndrome is a rare inherited condition that affects the metabolism of bilirubin, a breakdown product of red blood cells. Wikipedia Liver or hepatocyte transplantation may be necessary in Type I disease, which is much more severe than Type II. Gene therapy is being investigated for this condition. Carriers of a single risk allele are usually not affected. SNPs associated with this syndrome (and often with Gilberts syndrome and/or transient newborn jaundice) include ...
Crigler-Najjar syndrome or CNS is a rare inherited disorder affecting the metabolism of bilirubin, a chemical formed from the breakdown of the heme in red blood cells. The disorder results in a form of nonhemolytic jaundice, which results in high levels of unconjugated bilirubin and often leads to brain damage in infants. The disorder is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. This syndrome is divided into types I and II, with the latter sometimes called Arias syndrome. These two types, along with Gilberts syndrome, Dubin-Johnson syndrome, and Rotor syndrome, make up the five known hereditary defects in bilirubin metabolism. Unlike Gilberts syndrome, only a few cases of CNS are known. It is caused by abnormalities in the gene coding for uridine diphosphogluconurate glucuronosyltransferase (UGT1A1). UGT1A1 normally catalyzes the conjugation of bilirubin and glucuronic acid within hepatocytes. Conjugated bilirubin is more water soluble and is excreted in bile. This is a very rare disease ...

Do you know which doctor should you consult if you have Crigler-Najjar Syndrome. This and other commonly asked questions about this condition.
NIH Rare Diseases : 50 crigler najjar syndrome, type 2 is caused by mutations in the ugt1a1 gene. the gene mutation causes the body to be unable to make adequate enzyme to convert bilirubin into a form that can easily be removed from the body. without this enzyme, bilirubin can build up in the body and lead to extraordinarily yellow skin and eyes (jaundice). this condition is less severe than the type 1 form, however the severity of type ii can vary greatly. almost all patients with crigler najjar syndrome, type 2 develop normally, but there is a risk for some neurologic damage from kernicterus (bilirubin accumulation in the brain). in general people with type 2 crigler najjar syndrome have serum bilirubin levels ranging from 20 to 45 mg/dl. phenobarbital treatment is the standard therapy for this condition and can often help to drastically reduce the bilirubin levels. last updated: 1/19/2011 ...

Lucey-Driscoll syndrome is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder affecting enzymes involved in bilirubin metabolism. It is one of several disorders classified as a transient familial neonatal unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. The common cause is congenital, but it can also be caused by maternal steroids passed on through breast milk to the newborn. It is different from breast feeding-associated jaundice (breast-fed infants have higher bilirubin levels than formula-fed ones). A defect in the UGT1A1-gene, also linked to Crigler-Najjar syndrome and Gilberts syndrome, is responsible for the congenital form of Lucey-Driscoll syndrome.

Antiretrovirals are prone to drug-drug and drug-food interactions that can result in subtherapeutic or supratherapeutic concentrations. Interactions between antiretrovirals and medications for other diseases are common due to shared metabolism through cytochrome P450 (CYP450) and uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) enzymes and transport by membrane proteins (e.g., p-glycoprotein, organic anion-transporting polypeptide). The clinical significance of antiretroviral drug interactions is reviewed, with a focus on new and investigational agents. An overview of the mechanistic basis for drug interactions and the effect of individual antiretrovirals on CYP450 and UGT isoforms are provided. Interactions between antiretrovirals and medications for other co-morbidities are summarized. The role of therapeutic drug monitoring in the detection and management of antiretroviral drug interactions is also briefly discussed.

Congenital plasminogen deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized clinically by chronic mucosal pseudomembranous lesions consisting of subepithelial fibrin deposition and inflammation. The most common clinical manifestation is ligneous (wood-like) conjunctivitis, a redness and subsequent formation of pseudomembranes mostly on the palpebral surfaces of the eye that progress to white, yellow-white, or red thick masses with a wood-like consistency that replace the normal mucosa. The lesions may be triggered by local injury and/or infection and often recur after local excision. Pseudomembranous lesions of other mucous membranes often occur in the mouth, nasopharynx, trachea, and female genital tract. Some affected children also have congenital occlusive hydrocephalus. A slightly increased female:male ratio has been observed (1.4:1 to 2:1) (Schuster and Seregard, 2003; Tefs et al., 2006).

SUMMARY. At the moment 9 seemingly independent families with the clinical diagnosis of MJD are known in Brazil. The largest family tree of Azorean ancestry contatins 622 individuals in 9 generations. 236 were examined, 39 found to be affected by two examiners. Pheno-types I, II and III were expressed by 12, 23 and 4 patients with age of onset by phenotypea being 10-48, 14-54 and 30-55 respectively. Although clinically more severe, juvenile onset type I disease did not show as severe a ponto-mesencephialic atrophy on MRI as the father with type II disease of similar symptomatic duration. None of the 8 patients examined with MRI showed olivary atrophy or pallidal abnormalities. 12 affected and 23 at risk were evaluated with neuropsychological tests. Attention was normal in both groups. Verbal memory scores were below normal in the affected and there was greater decay with time than in the risk group. Both scored below normal in identifying silluettes and constructional praxis. Visual memory scores ...

Gilberts syndrome occurs due to deficiency of the UGT enzyme that helps in conjugation of free unconjugated bilirubin. This conjugation process by glucoronidation helps in making the bilirubin water soluble and finally helps in excretion of the bilirubin in urine and faeces. Bilirubin is the breakdown product of dead and aged red blood cells. While the protein portion of the haemoglobin present in the red blood cells is salvaged the heme part is excreted in the bilirubin. Gilberts syndrome occurs in 1 in 20 individuals. This syndrome is characterized by jaundice. However, there is a large population of sufferers who are not aware of their condition. They have intermittent elevation of levels of bilirubin in blood that returns to normal and stays normal most of the time. ...

Mutations in human and/or mouse homologs are associated with this disease. Synonyms: Constitutional hyperbilirubinemia; Gilberts disease; Gilberts syndrome; Gilbert-Meulengracht syndrome; hereditary nonhemolytic jaundice
Bilirubin is one of the most commonly used tests to assess liver function. Approximately 85% of the total bilirubin produced is derived from the heme moiety of hemoglobin, while the remaining 15% is produced from RBC precursors destroyed in the bone marrow and from the catabolism of other heme-containing proteins. After production in peripheral tissues, bilirubin is rapidly taken up by hepatocytes where it is conjugated with glucuronic acid to produce bilirubin mono- and diglucuronide, which are then excreted in the bile.. A number of inherited and acquired diseases affect one or more of the steps involved in the production, uptake, storage, metabolism, and excretion of bilirubin. Bilirubinemia is frequently a direct result of these disturbances.. The most commonly occurring form of unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia is that seen in newborns and referred to as physiological jaundice.. The increased production of bilirubin, that accompanies the premature breakdown of erythrocytes and ineffective ...

Gilberts syndrome is a genetic disorder thats hereditary (it runs in families). People with the syndrome have a faulty gene which causes the liver to have problems removing bilirubin from the blood.. Normally, when red blood cells reach the end of their life (after about 120 days), haemoglobin - the red pigment that carries oxygen in the blood - breaks down into bilirubin.. The liver converts bilirubin into a water-soluble form, which passes into bile and is eventually removed from the body in urine or stools. Bilirubin gives urine its light yellow colour and stools their dark brown colour.. In Gilberts syndrome, the faulty gene means that bilirubin isnt passed into bile (a fluid produced by the liver to help with digestion) at the normal rate. Instead, it builds up in the bloodstream, giving the skin and white of the eyes a yellowish tinge.. Other than inheriting the faulty gene, there are no known risk factors for developing Gilberts syndrome. It isnt related to lifestyle habits, ...
Gilberts Girls. Recently during our regular monthly mentoring groups, a practitioner presented a fascinating case of a 35yo female suffering from pronounced GIT issues (GORD and chronic oesophagitis, gastropariesis, IBS, 15 years of PPI use) coupled with anxiety, panic attacks, broken sleep & a picture suggestive of oestrogen excess (short cycles, intense heavy bleeding, clotting & weight gain). Interestingly her fraternal twin sister presented with a very similar picture. Both happen to have genetic hyperbilirubinemia known as Gilberts syndrome. This means that, like 10-15% of Caucasians, they are homozygous for a mutation that diminishes the expression and activity of a major enzyme cluster within the glucuronidation pathway, a dominant pathway in phase 2 detoxification. In turn this impairs their ability to effectively metabolise bilirubin (as well as some other neurotransmitters, hormones & drugs) leading to higher levels of unconjugated bilirubin (UCB) called Total or Indirect ...
Cause of elevated bilirubin - What is the cause of elevated bilirubin in young man, more than 2 years? Bilirubin is 31 (norm |17)no gilbert syndrome Many possible causes.. . ranging from problems with the gallbladder or bile duct to liver problems to problems with metabolism. If you know that Gilbert syndrome is not present, you must have seen a physician about this in the past. If a diagnosis still has not been made, I would ask to see a hepatologist for more definitive testing. Good luck.

Gilberts syndrome is a common, benign genetic liver disorder. It causes levels of bilirubin to rise above normal levels. Bilirubin is a yellow chemical by-product of hemoglobin (the red pigment in blood cells) and is usually excreted by the liver as bile.. Gilberts syndrome is found in 3%-7% of the US population, affecting up to 10% of some Caucasian populations. This condition usually manifests during the teen years or in adulthood years (ages 20-30).. ...

This is really interesting, because I had recently been looking into something called Gilberts Syndrome - high histamine, and I have noticed that many of the symptoms are very similar to EMF/EMR exposure, as you had indicated.For example, the literature you cited referenced the following biological effects which seem very similar to Gilberts-histadalia:depletion of Glutathione, melatoninabnormal influx of calcium into mast cells, which produces histaminered blood cell clumping, palpitationsdecrease of 5-HT, norepinephine, melatonin, dopamine, acetylcholine etc..To address, I have been taking methionine, B6, calcium/magnesium/d3, omega3, vitc/zinc, and an occasional 5-HTP (and some other vitamins). The results of this vitamin routine have been limited in Europe, but the effect while in Africa was remarkable.Any comment on the relationship between EMF/EMR exposure and the so-called Gilberts syndrome?Thanks, ...

  • Gilbert's syndrome, also known as familial nonhemolytic jaundice or hyperbilirubinemia 1, is a common, benign genetic hepatic dysfunction that occurs when the liver does not process bilirubin correctly (the liver is not able to degrade bilirubin). (geneticsdigest.com)
  • Therefore, this syndrome is characterized by an excess of bilirubin (a product of red blood cells) in the blood, a condition known as hyperbilirubinemia. (geneticsdigest.com)
  • Patients with Gilbert's syndrome have a reduced level of this crucial hepatic enzyme required for elimination of bilirubin, and therefore, they have elevated levels of bilirubin (hyperbilirubinemia). (geneticsdigest.com)
  • Thus, people having Gilbert's syndrome possess a reduced level of this enzyme required for the elimination of bilirubin, and therefore, they have elevated levels of bilirubin (hyperbilirubinemia). (geneticsdigest.com)

  • Which is the role of genes in the development of Gilbert's Syndrome? (geneticsdigest.com)
  • Gilbert's syndrome is caused by a modification in the DNA (known as mutation) of the gene known as uridine diphosphate-glucuronosyltransferase-1A1 (UGT1A1). (geneticsdigest.com)
  • Therefore, patients with Gilbert's syndrome have a deficiency of the UGT enzyme, and therefore, bilirubin is not converted at the standard rate. (geneticsdigest.com)
  • It is important to underline that although the individuals with Gilbert's syndrome possess around 33% of the regular UGT enzyme activity, they are also able to conjugate enough bilirubin to prevent symptoms from developing. (geneticsdigest.com)
  • The mutated (abnormal) UGT1A1 gene that causes Gilbert's syndrome is common. (geneticsdigest.com)
  • However, it is important to underline that two abnormal (mutated) copies of this gene are required to induce Gilbert's syndrome. (geneticsdigest.com)
  • Therefore, people with only a single abnormal (mutated) gene have higher than normal levels of unconjugated bilirubin but do not have Gilbert's syndrome. (geneticsdigest.com)
  • The most common genetic mutation (permanent alteration in the DNA sequence) that produces Gilbert's syndrome occurs in an area of DNA near the UGT1A1 gene, known as promoter region, which controls the production of the UGT enzyme. (geneticsdigest.com)
  • Importantly, it has also been observed that another type of mutation in the UGT1A1 gene can cause Gilbert's syndrome (commonly in Asians populations). (geneticsdigest.com)
