SAXS fingerprints of aldehyde dehydrogenase oligomers.
Columbia, United States. In Data Brief, Dec 2015
Mutations in genes encoding ALDHs cause metabolic disorders, including alcohol flush reaction (ALDH2), Sjögren-Larsson syndrome (ALDH3A2), hyperprolinemia type II (ALDH4A1), γ-hydroxybutyric aciduria (ALDH5A1), methylmalonic aciduria (ALDH6A1), pyridoxine dependent epilepsy (ALDH7A1), and hyperammonemia (ALDH18A1).
Diagnostic yield of genetic testing in epileptic encephalopathy in childhood.
Toronto, Canada. In Epilepsia, May 2015
RESULTS: Genetic causes were identified in 28% of the 110 patients: 7% had inherited metabolic disorders including pyridoxine dependent epilepsy caused by ALDH7A1 mutation, Menkes disease, pyridox(am)ine-5-phosphate oxidase deficiency, cobalamin G deficiency, methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase deficiency, glucose transporter 1 deficiency, glycine encephalopathy, and pyruvate dehydrogenase complex deficiency; 21% had other genetic causes including genetic syndromes, pathogenic copy number variants on array comparative genomic hybridization, and epileptic encephalopathy related to mutations in the SCN1A, SCN2A, SCN8A, KCNQ2, STXBP1, PCDH19, and SLC9A6 genes.
Mutations in antiquitin in individuals with pyridoxine-dependent seizures.
London, United Kingdom. In Nat Med, 2006
We show here that children with pyridoxine-dependent seizures (PDS) have mutations in the ALDH7A1 gene, which encodes antiquitin; these mutations abolish the activity of antiquitin as a delta1-piperideine-6-carboxylate (P6C)-alpha-aminoadipic semialdehyde (alpha-AASA) dehydrogenase.
Seattle, United States. In Unknown Journal, 2002
ALDH7A1 is the only gene in which pathogenic variants are known to cause pyridoxine-dependent epilepsy.
