4-Aminobutyrate aminotransferase (GABA-transaminase, GABA-T, EC deficiency (McKusick 137150), an inborn error of GABA degradation, has until now been documented in only a single Flemish child. Compared to the other defects of GABA degradation, succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase (SSADH, EC deficiency with >150 patients (McKusick 271980) and pyridoxine-dependent seizures with >100 patients ('putative'glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD, EC deficiency; McKusick 266100… CONTINUE READING
