Molecular diagnosis of urea cycle disorders: current global scenario.
In Indian J Biochem Biophys, 2013
This encompasses 5 major disorders, corresponding with deficiency of each step in the urea cycle, namely ornithine transcarbamoylase (OTC) deficiency, argininosuccinate lyase (ASL) deficiency, carbamoyl phosphate synthetase (CPS) deficiency, citrullinemia and argininemia.
Optimizing therapy for argininosuccinic aciduria.
Houston, United States. In Mol Genet Metab, 2012
In this article, we discuss the natural history of ASA and the recent mechanistic insights from animal studies that have shown the requirement of argininosuccinate lyase, the enzyme deficient in ASA, for systemic nitric oxide production.
Regulation of cellular metabolism by protein lysine acetylation.
Shanghai, China. In Science, 2010
Acetylation activated enoyl-coenzyme A hydratase/3-hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase in fatty acid oxidation and malate dehydrogenase in the TCA cycle, inhibited argininosuccinate lyase in the urea cycle, and destabilized phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase in gluconeogenesis.
Recruitment of enzymes as lens structural proteins.
In Science, 1987
In terms of sequence similarity, size, and other physical characteristics delta-crystallin is closely related to argininosuccinate lyase, tau-crystallin to enolase, and SIII-crystallin to glutathione S-transferase; moreover, it has recently been demonstrated that epsilon-crystallin is an active lactate dehydrogenase.
