N2 - Homocystinuria is a metabolic disorder associated with defects in genes encoding for methionine metabolism enzymes. Vascular and connective tissue manifestations such as deep venous thrombosis, ectopia lentis and skeletal alterations are the major clinical features. We investigated the clinical manifestations of 5 Italian homocystinuric patients, performed mutation screening analysis on cystationine beta-synthase (CBS) gene and searched for genotype/phenotype correlations. We detected mild cardiovascular and skin connective tissue stigmas in these patients, never reported in homocystinuric patients before. We found 1 novel and 7 known mutations. ...
Homocystinuria also known as cystathionine beta synthase deficiency or CBS deficiency, is an autosomal recessively inherited disorder in which patients are unable to properly process certain amino acids. The principal biochemical features of this condition are markedly elevated plasma homocysteine concentration (pHcy), total homocysteine (tHcy), plasma concentrations of methionine as well as increased urinary concentration of homocysteine (Hcy). The most common form of homocystinuria is caused by the lack of cystathionine beta synthase (CBS), a vitamin B6 dependent enzyme. Homocystinuria caused by CBS deficiency effects at least 1 in 200,000 or 335,000 people worldwide. Other forms of homocystinuria are much rarer.. Early diagnosis and interventions have helped prevent some of the complications of homocystinuria, including ectopia lentis (dislocation of the ocular lens) and/or severe myopia, developmental delay/mental retardation and skeletal abnormalities.. There are two phenotypic variants of ...

N2 - BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Combined methylmalonic aciduria and homocystinuria (MMA-HC) is caused by impaired hepatic conversion of dietary cobalamin to methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, resulting in decreased activity of methylmalonyl-CoA mutase and methionine synthase. Patients with the early-onset variety present within 12 months of age with severe neurologic, hematologic, and gastrointestinal abnormalities. We describe the neuroradiologic features of early-onset MMA-HC and discuss related pathophysiological mechanisms. METHODS: Twelve infants with hypotonia, failure to thrive, poor feeding, and hematologic abnormalities were diagnosed with MMA-HC on the basis of a typical plasmatic and urinary metabolic ...

This disorder leads to a multi-systemic disease of the cardiovascular system, CNS, muscles, and connective tissue. Homocystinuria represents a group of hereditary metabolic disorders characterized by the accumulation of homocysteine in serum and elevated excretion of homocysteine in urine.
The cblD defect of intracellular vitamin B(12) metabolism can lead to isolated methylmalonic aciduria (cblD-MMA) or homocystinuria (cblD-HC), or combined methylmalonic aciduria and homocystinuria (cblD-MMA/HC). We studied the mechanism whereby MMADHC mutations can lead to three phenotypes. The effect of various expression vectors containing MMADHC modified to contain an enhanced mitochondrial leader sequence or mutations changing possible downstream sites of reinitiation of translation or mutations introducing stop codons on rescue of adenosyl- and methylcobalamin (MeCbl) formation was studied. The constructs were transfected into cell lines derived from various cblD patients fibroblasts. Expression of 10 mutant alleles from 15 cblD patients confirmed that the nature and location of the mutations correlate with the biochemical phenotype. In cblD-MMA/HC cells, improving mitochondrial targeting of MMADHC clearly increased the formation of adenosylcobalamin (AdoCbl) with a concomitant decrease in ...

Abnormalities in the homocysteine metabolism with homocystinuria were first described in 1962 by Carson and Neill on two siblings from Northern Ireland, both with mental retardation. Nearly simultaneously, Gerritson et al. (1962) discovered an infant with congenital anomalies, mental retardation and failure to thrive, and provided definitive chemical proof of homocysteine excretion in the urine. Two years later, Mudd and Finkelstein (1964) reported that the cystathionine-ß-synthase was lacking in a liver biopsy specimen from another patient with homocystinuria. Thereafter, the relationship between folate and homocysteine was described by Carey et al. (1966) and low circulating folate levels were found in patients with homocystinuria and mental retardation (Carey et al. 1968). They also demonstrated a decrease in urinary homocystine excretion by high-dose folate supplementation. Later, McCully (1969) suggested the association between homocysteine and the characteristic, premature atherosclerotic ...
Homocysteine has been implicated as a pathogenetic factor in the development of arterial disease in a number of in vitro and experimental animal studies that have demonstrated an association between hyperhomocysteinemia and endothelial cell damage.5 6 7 8 In cell culture experiments, addition of homocysteine into the culture medium induces cell detachment from endothelial cell monolayers6 and functional abnormalities in the release of endothelium-derived NO.7 In nonhuman primates, a continuous homocysteine infusion for 3 months has resulted in patchy endothelial desquamation amounting to 10% of the aortic surface,5 and moderate hyperhomocysteinemia induced by methionine feeding has led to abnormal arterial vasomotor activity.8 In humans, homozygous homocystinuria is a rare disorder usually diagnosed in childhood, associated with markedly accelerated atherosclerosis and thrombosis and with endothelial dysfunction in children as young as 4 years old.13 Sporadic hyperhomocysteinemia, however, may ...

Lowering homocysteine concentrations has been shown to have a large effect on cardiovascular disease risk in patients with homocystinuria. Untreated people who are homozygous for this rare genetic disorder have homocysteine concentrations about five times above the average for unaffected people and about a 50% chance of a vascular event by age 30.4 In two studies, homozygous patients taking treatment to reduce homocysteine concentrations had only two vascular events when 59 would have been expected from previous observations in untreated patients.5 6 Although these were not randomised trials, selection bias is unlikely to explain so large a difference. The absence of a threshold in the dose-response relation between homocysteine and cardiovascular disease over a wide range3 7 suggests that lowering moderately raised homocysteine concentrations would also have a preventive effect. ...

Homocysteine is an intermediary in the sulphur-amino acid metabolism pathways, linking the methionine cycle to the folate cycle. Several primary and secondary disorders of methionine metabolism may be diagnosed based on measurement of homocysteine in plasma and urine.. Inborn errors that lead to homocysteinemia/-uria involving defects in the primary enzyme include cystathionine synthase deficiency (homocystinuria), methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase deficiency and thermolabile variants, and methionine synthase (MS) deficiency. Genetic defects in vitamin cofactors (vitamin B6, B12, and folate) and nutritional deficiency of B12 and folate also lead to abnormal homocysteine accumulation.. Homocysteine concentration is an indicator of acquired folate or cobalamin deficiency, and is a contributing factor in the pathogenesis of neural tube defects ...

The enzyme cystathionine β-synthase (CBS) catalyzes the condensation of serine and homocysteine to produce cystathionine, an important intermediate in the biosynthesis of cysteine. Deficiency of CBS activity results in toxic levels of homocysteine and is the most common cause of homocystinuria, a disease whose symptoms include dislocated eye lenses, skeletal and vascular problems, and mental retardation. Although the catalytic chemistry of CBS is performed by its coenzyme pyridoxal 5-phosphate (PLP), heme is essential for activity in human CBS. Heme is also found in Drosophila CBS. However, the CBS enzymes of lower organisms (e.g. yeast) do not need heme at all. Why, then, has nature included a heme in the CBS in the course of evolution? A number of hypotheses have been put out base on previous studies, including both structural and regulatory roles for the heme. However, there is still no concensus on what the heme does in CBS. In collaboration with Professor Jan Kraus ...

The group studies the basic mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of human diseases and their possible prevention and treatment through recombinant DNA procedures. Clinical, animal and in vitro models are used to investigate, at the molecular level, genotype-phenotype correlations in pre-mRNA splicing defects.. This approach allows us to reach two main objectives. First, to identify pathogenic mutations in human disease and second, to take advantage of the pointers provided by human pathology, to explore novel molecular mechanisms involved in the splicing process.. The systems under study cover diverse topics within the splicing field. The 5 and 3 splice site definition is being studied in gene systems such as the breast cancer gene BRCA1, the potassium channel KCHN2 (responsible for some forms of long QT syndrome), Cystic Fibrosis (CFTR gene), Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1 gene), Thrombopoietin (TPO) and Cystathionine Beta Synthase (CBS).

According to the market research report "Betaine Market :By Type (Synthetic, Natural); By Form (Betaine Anhydrous, Cocamidopropyl Betaine); By End-users (Food & Beverages, Animal Feed) & Geography - Forecast (2016-2021)", published by IndustryARC, estimates tremendous expansion for new entrants.. Browse Report @ http://industryarc.com/Report/15179/betaine-market.html. Betaine is a by-product of sugar beet processing. This works by preventing the build-up of an amino acid called homocysteine. This amino acid causes harm to blood vessels and contributes to heart disease, stroke and circulation problems.. After the discovery of betaine supplement, this was originally used to turn homocysteine into L-methionine. Homocysteine is a toxic samino acid that can lead to various health problems when elevated in the body including atherosclerosis, osteoporosis and multiple cardiovascular issues. Betaine supplementation is extremely important for individuals with homocystinuria, a rare genetic condition that ...

Homocystine is an amino acid, which is known for its congenitally acquired disease, Homocystinurea. Researchers have proposed that elevated plasma Homocystine may be associated with atherosclerosis. Patients with mild to moderate hyperhomocytinemia (seen in 5-7%of population) may be asymptomatic until third and forth decade that they may refer with coronary artery disease or recurrent arterial or venous thrombosis. Sever hyperhomocytinemia is relatively rare and is usually seen as homocystinurea. Normal plasma level of Homocystine is 5 - 15μmol/l (higher in men than premenopausal women). Causes of hyperhomocystinemia include: 1- enzymatic defects (Cystathione ß-synthase deficiency (the most common enzymatic defect), MTHFR deficiency, Methionine synthase deficiency), 2- dietary deficiency (folate, Vit B12, Vit B6) and 3- other causes (renal failure, liver disorders, hypothyroidism, malignancy including breast, ovarian or pancreatic cancers and drugs (such as methotrexate, trimetoprim, ...

Presently there are ,100 CBS mutations known that lead to more or less severe phenotypes in the patient. Five mutations are located close to or at the heme binding site (R58W, H65R, R224H, A226T and R266G/K), eight mutations affect the active site region of CBS and binding of the cofactor PLP (G148R, N228K, T257M, G259S, E302K, G305R, G307S and T353M) and six mutations are located at the dimer interface (P88S, A114V, G116R, I152M, E176K and V180A). Twelve mutated residues are on the surface of the protein and exposed to solvent. Most of these mutations are expected to affect enzyme activity by a general destabilization of the protein structure, which is probably the case for one of the most frequent mutations in patients, I278T. Together with the other frequent mutation, G307S, they represent ∼40% of all mutant alleles. This second mutation (G307S), which confers a severe phenotype, probably influences binding of the second substrate homocysteine, as homocysteine is expected to bind to the ...
de Bruijne and colleagues (1) suggested an association between venous occlusion in the eye and elevated total plasma homocysteine levels. This association was established in an earlier study published in 1993 (2). In 19 patients who had retinal vein occlusion or retinal artery occlusion before 50 years of age, the incidence of hyperhomocysteinemia, as observed in heterozygosity for homocystinuria, was studied by the performance of a standardized, oral methionine-loading test. In 4 of the 19 patients (21%), 2 with retinal artery occlusion and 2 with central retinal vein occlusion, the afterload peak levels of homocysteine exceeded the mean level (established in normal controls) by more than 2 standard deviations and were well within the ranges established in obligate heterozygotes for homocystinuria ...
Hair amino acids have been studied in 10 controls and in 25 patients suffering from metabolic inborn errors. Abnormalities of hair amino acid pattern were found in several cases. In phenylketonuria (7 cases), the hair phenylalanine level was significantly higher than that of the normal subjects. Glutamic acid was decreased. In homocystinuria (5 cases), the phenylalanine level was increased. The results suggest that a detailed examination of the hair proteins could give further information.. ...
Pectus excavatum (funnel chest, depressed sternum) is a condition where the lower half of the sternum is depressed back and there is decreased distance in relation to the dorsal spine. It can occur as an isolated feature or associated with Marfans syndrome or congenital heart disease especially atrial septal disease. Other syndromes associated with pectus deformity include Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Fetal alcohol syndrome, homocystinuria and Noonan syndrome.The condition itself can cause a functional systolic murmur.Patient may present with chest pain, easy fatigability, dyspnea on exertion, palpitations and symptoms of restrictive lung disease(tracheal or bronchial compression). It is speculated that the abnormality is probably due to excessive growth of the lowermost cartilages.. Plain films on a PA view show a variety of findings including steep downward slope of the anterior ends of the ribs and a good delineation of the lower dorsal spine through the heart. There is a shift of the heart to ...
Cobalamin (Cbl, vitamin B12) is a cobalt-containing vitamin which is synthesized by bacteria and archaea. It can be taken up from food of animal origin, but not from higher plants. Various cobalamins differ in the residue R in the upper axial position of the molecule. In adenosylcobalamin (AdoCbl) R is a 5-deoxyadenosyl moiety, in methylcobalamin (MeCbl) a methyl group. Common vitamin B12 supplements contain hydroxocobalamin (OHCbl, labelled "the natural form of the vitamin", with R = OH) or cyanocobalamin (CNCbl, with R = CN). CNCbl does not occur naturally, but is formed during the isolation of bacterial cobalamin (Watkins & Rosenblatt, 2011a). Nominations such as cblA- cblG and cblJ do not refer to special forms of cobalamin, but to enzymes and transport proteins involved in intracellular cobalamin metabolism. Each of those designations refers to a different complementation group and to a defect in cobalamin metabolism caused by mutations in the gene identified for this particular ...

Background: Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) is an established risk factor for atherothrombogenic diseases. In this study we investigated the effect of HHcy on EC-platelets interaction and its role in thrombosis. Methods and Results: We used a novel mouse model of HHcy (plasma homocysteine, Hcy 80 μ M) in which a Zn2+ inducible human cystathionine β-synthase (CBS) transgene was introduced to circumvent the neonatal lethality of Cbs deficiency (Tg-hCBS Cbs−/−mice). Hcy-lowering therapy was performed by giving ZnSO4 water to induce human CBS transgene expression in adult mice. Thrombus formation was examined by photo-dye induced cremaster microvasculature thrombosis using intra-vital microscope, which preserved the endothelium, and by FeCl3-induced carotid artery thrombosis, which denudated the endothelium. HHcy accelerated cremaster arteriolar thrombosis and decreased blood flow cessation time from 41.8 min in control mice to 30.5 min in Tg-hCBS Cbs−/− mice. Venular blood flow cessation time ...
Cystathionine γ-lyase (CGL) is the last enzyme of the trans-sulphuration pathway, which converts methionine into cysteine. To study the possible differences in enzymic activity of the two human cystathionine γ-lyase isoforms characterized earlier, these were separately expressed in human kidney embryonic 293T cells. Furthermore, developmental changes in the expression of the two mRNA forms as well as the enzymic activity in human liver were studied, as it has been postulated that a change in the relative expression of CGL isoforms causes the postnatal increase in CGL activity. Transfection with the longer isoform increased the CGL activity 1.5-fold, while the activity of the cells transfected with the shorter form did not differ from the basal activity. In human liver samples, CGL activity was only detected in adult tissue (68±9 nmol of cysteine/h per mg of protein), whereas activity in fetal, premature and full-term neonatal liver tissue was undetectable. In contrast, strong mRNA expression ...

The activity of 5-aminolaevulinate (ALA) synthase, the first and rate-limiting of haem synthesis, was markedly reduced (13% of controls) in erythroblasts of a patient with acquired, primary sideroblastic anaemia (PASA). The reduced activity of ALA synthase could not be restored in vitro with 1 mmol/l pyridoxal-5-phosphate (PLP). Treatment of the patient with pyridoxine for several months increased the ALA synthase activity from 13% to 50% of controls in the absence and to 100% in the presence of PLP in the incubation medium. These studies suggest that both increased degradation of apo-ALA synthase and decreased affinity of ALA synthase for PLP may be involved in pyridoxine-responsive PASA ...
Results In the discovery study on mothers, the CBS locus reached array-wide significance (p=9.13×10−6; Bonferroni p=4.77×10−3; OR 0.47 (0.33 to 0.66)) among the 519 haplotypes tested for their association with OFC risk. Within the CBS haplotype block (rs2124459, rs6586282, rs4920037, rs234705, rs234709), the rs2124459 was the most significantly associated with a reduced risk of OFC (p=1.77×10−4; Bonferroni p=2.00×10−2; OR 0.53 (0.38 to 0.74), minor allele). The rs2124459 was associated with a reduced risk of cleft palate (CP) (p=6.78×10−5; Bonferroni p=7.80×10−3; OR 0.40 (0.25 to 0.63)). In the children group, the rs2124459 was associated with a reduced risk of CP (p=0.02; OR 0.61 (0.40 to 0.93), minor allele). The association between rs2124459 and reduced risk of CP was replicated in an independent children population from Belgium (p=0.02; OR 0.64 (0.44 to 0.93), minor allele). ...

The suggestion that some colorectal cancers (CRCs) develop by a methylation pathway has been given support by a genetic study of 500 patients in Australia. The findings support the view that key enzymes in the metabolism of folate and methyl groups, which affect DNA methylation, influence predisposition to CRCs, particularly sporadic (non-familial) cancers with microsatellite instability (MSI).. The researchers hypothesised that genetic polymorphisms in enzymes of folate metabolism-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) and cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS)-would respectively predispose to or protect against MSI+ CRCs, owing to their effects on enzyme activity.. Comparison of the frequency of polymorphic genotypes in patients with MSI+ and MSI− CRCs and in controls confirmed the hypothysis. The MTHFR TT genotype-which results in a 30% drop in enzyme activity-was significantly associated with CRC, but in patients aged ≥70 years, compared with age matched controls (12% v 7%). It also ...
