A 76-year-old man was found to have a false hypertriglyceridemia due to a 40-fold increased glycerolemia. This metabolic change was due to a deficiency in glycerol kinase (ATP:glycerol phosphotransferase, EC activity in the cells of this patient as shown by incubation of his white blood cells with [14 C]glycerol. Several chromatographic analyses and quantitative assays were performed on plasma and urine of this patient and of his relatives. The small number of this family's members… Expand
Pseudo-hypertriglyceridaemia: a measurement artefact due to glycerol kinase deficiency
Glycerol kinase deficiency was suspected and was supported by elevated urine glycerol, and confirmed by reduced leucocyte enzyme activity and mutational analysis of the GK gene which showed a novel three base pair deletion. Expand
Pseudohypertriglyceridemia from oral glycerine.
A 74 year-old Thai woman was found to have hypertriglyceridemia possibly due to an increased blood glycerol level, and her serum TG concentrations increased from 77 to 1,815 and 2,693 mg/dl, but decreased rapidly to 72 and 59mg/dl on days 3 and 6 following withdrawal of glycerine treatment. Expand

Glycerol kinase deficiency, as an inborn error of this compartmented metabolic system, offers an investigational opportunity for studying this microenvironment. Expand
Infantile glycerol kinase deficiency— a condition requiring prompt identification
Clinical, endocrinological, biochemical, and morphological findings in two non-related boys, one of them died in early infancy and the other is thriving at the age of 2 years although he is suffering from a myopathy not distinguishable from Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Expand
Transient pseudo-hypertriglyceridemia: a useful biochemical marker of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase deficiency
Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBP) deficiency is an autosomal-recessive disorder of gluconeogenesis resulting from mutations within the FBP1 gene. During periods of trivial illness, individuals withExpand
Complex Glycerol Kinase Deficiency and Adrenocortical Insufficiency in Two Neonates
It is concluded that AI in the context of other genetic abnormalities should prompt chromosomal investigations in the absence of another unifying explanation. Expand
Liver glycerokinase deficiency in man with hyperglycerolaemia and hypertriglyceridaemia
Hyperglycerolaemia and glyceroluria is described in a patient who presented transient dietary‐induced hypertriglyceridaemia and was related to glycerokinase deficiency as evidenced by a hepatic tissue glycerakinase activity of one tenth of that of normoglycerolaemic subjects. Expand
Isolated Glycerol Kinase Deficiency in a Neonate
It is reported a case of isolated glycerol kinase deficiency in a neonate presenting with hypotonia, apnea, mild developmental delay, and Glyceroluria, without evidence of adrenal insufficiency or myopathy. Expand
A Case With the Infantile Type of Glycerol Kinase Deficiency
Clinical, biochemical and genetic findings in this patient are reported and a small deletion in a band (Xp21) of the X chromosome is reported, which revealed muscular dystrophy, adrenal insufficiency and glycerol kinase deficiency. Expand

A simple method for the isolation and purification of total lipides from animal tissues.
A simplified version of the method for the preparation and purification of brain lipides has the advantage of being simpler, of being applicable to any scale desired, of substantially decreasing the losses of lipides incidental to the washing process, and of yielding a washed extract which can be taken to dryness without foaming and without splitting of the proteolipides.

Three methods of assaying the high density lipoprotein cholesterol were applied simultaneously to a hundred of human sera: ultracentrifugation, precipitation by concavalin A and phosphotungstic acid.Expand
Detection of Sugars on Paper Chromatograms
Modifications are introduced, based on a test given by Feigl for reducing sugars, which eliminate the heating step, and in which the reagents are applied in organic solvents, thus removing the danger of migration of the sugar spots. Expand
