Homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase

HGD, Homogentisate 1,2-Dioxygenase, HGO, homogentisic acid oxidase, AKU
This gene encodes the enzyme homogentisate 1,2 dioxygenase. This enzyme is involved in the catabolism of the amino acids tyrosine and phenylalanine. Mutations in this gene are the cause of the autosomal recessive metabolism disorder alkaptonuria.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010] (from NCBI)

Oxidative stress and mechanisms of ochronosis in alkaptonuria.
Santucci et al., Siena, Italy. In Free Radic Biol Med, Nov 2015
Alkaptonuria (AKU) is a rare metabolic disease due to a deficient activity of the enzyme homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase (HGD), involved in Phe and Tyr catabolism.
Formation of Soluble Mercury Oxide Coatings: Transformation of Elemental Mercury in Soils.
Pierce et al., Oak Ridge, United States. In Environ Sci Technol, Nov 2015
Here, we show that Hg(0) beads interact with soil or manganese oxide solids and X-ray spectroscopic analysis indicates that the soluble mercury coatings are HgO.

Amyloidosis in alkaptonuria.
Santucci et al., Siena, Italy. In J Inherit Metab Dis, Sep 2015
Alkaptonuria (AKU) is an ultra-rare inborn error of metabolism developed from the lack of homogentisic acid oxidase activity, causing homogentisic acid (HGA) accumulation that produces an HGA-melanin ochronotic pigment, of hitherto unknown composition.
Old treatments for new insights and strategies: proposed management in adults and children with alkaptonuria.
de Lonlay et al., Paris, France. In J Inherit Metab Dis, Sep 2015
Alkaptonuria (AKU) is caused by deficiency of the enzyme homogentisate 1,2 dioxygenase.

Proteomic analysis of Chromobacterium violaceum and its adaptability to stress.
Orlandi et al., Manaus, Brazil. In Bmc Microbiol, 2014
Stress-related expression changes were noted for C. violaceum proteins related to the previously characterized bacterial proteins: DnaK, GroEL-2, Rhs, EF-Tu, EF-P; MCP, homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase, Arginine deiminase and the ATP synthase β-subunit protein as well as for the ribosomal protein subunits L1, L3, L5 and L6.

Santucci et al., Siena, Italy. In J Cell Physiol, 2012
The observed increase of HGD expression in Alkaptonuria cells is probably due to a compensatory mechanism to overcome the almost null catalytic activity of the deficient enzyme
