Sparse-fur (spf) mouse is the ideal animal model to study the neuropathology of congenital ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency. Our current hypothesis implies that an ammonia-induced depletion of energy metabolism in the spf mouse, could be due to a reduction in the activities of the enzymes of the electron transport chain and a treatment with(More)
The sparse-fur (spf) mutant mouse has an X-linked deficiency of hepatic ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC), and develops hyperammonemia immediately after weaning and maintains it throughout its life span. We have studied the effects of acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR) on the hepatic mitochondrial proteins of the chronically hyperammonemic spf mice. Two different(More)
