6-PYRUVOYL-TETRAHYDROPTERIN SYNTHASE DEFICIENCY


Alternate names

6-PYRUVOYL-TETRAHYDROPTERIN SYNTHASE DEFICIENCY Is also known as hyperphenylalaninemia due to 6-pyruvoyltetrahydropterin synthase deficiency

Description

6-pyruvoyl-tetrahydropterin synthase (PTPS) deficiency is one of the causes of malignant hyperphenylalaninemia due to tetrahydrobiopterin deficiency. Not only does tetrahydrobiopterin deficiency cause hyperphenylalaninemia, it is also responsible for defective neurotransmission of monoamines because of malfunctioning tyrosine and tryptophan hydroxylases, both tetrahydrobiopterin-dependent hydroxylases.

Most common symptoms of 6-PYRUVOYL-TETRAHYDROPTERIN SYNTHASE DEFICIENCY

  • Intellectual disability
  • Seizures
  • Global developmental delay
  • Ataxia
  • Muscular hypotonia

HYPERPHENYLALANINEMIA, BH4-DEFICIENT, A; HPABH4A


Alternate names

HYPERPHENYLALANINEMIA, BH4-DEFICIENT, A; HPABH4A Is also known as hyperphenylalaninemia, tetrahydrobiopterin-deficient, due to pts deficiency, 6-pyruvoyl-tetrahydropterin synthase deficiency, pts deficiency

Description

Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4)-deficient hyperphenylalaninemia (HPA) comprises a genetically heterogeneous group of progressive neurologic disorders caused by autosomal recessive mutations in the genes encoding enzymes involved in the synthesis or regeneration of BH4. BH4 is a cofactor for phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH ), tyrosine hydroxylase (TH ) and tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH1 ), the latter 2 of which are involved in neurotransmitter synthesis. The BH4-deficient HPAs are characterized phenotypically by hyperphenylalaninemia, depletion of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, and progressive cognitive and motor deficits (Dudesek et al., 2001).HPABH4A, caused by mutations in the PTS gene, represents the most common cause of BH4-deficient hyperphenylalaninemia (Dudesek et al., 2001). Other forms of BH4-deficient HPA include HPABH4B (OMIM ), caused by mutation in the GCH1 gene (OMIM ), HPABH4C (OMIM ), caused by mutation in the QDPR gene (OMIM ), and HPABH4D (OMIM ), caused by mutation in the PCBD1 gene (OMIM ). Niederwieser et al. (1982) noted that about 1 to 3% of patients with hyperphenylalaninemia have one of these BH4-deficient forms. These disorders are clinically and genetically distinct from classic phenylketonuria (PKU ), caused by mutation in the PAH gene.Two additional disorders associated with BH4 deficiency and neurologic symptoms do not have overt hyperphenylalaninemia as a feature: dopa-responsive dystonia (OMIM ), caused by mutation in the SPR gene (OMIM ), and autosomal dominant dopa-responsive dystonia (DYT5 ), caused by mutation in the GCH1 gene. Patients with these disorders may develop hyperphenylalaninemia when stressed.

Most common symptoms of HYPERPHENYLALANINEMIA, BH4-DEFICIENT, A; HPABH4A

  • Seizures
  • Global developmental delay
  • Generalized hypotonia
  • Microcephaly
  • Ataxia
