Congenital methylmalonic acidemia: a variant of the B12 'non-responsive' form with evidence for reduced affinity of methylmalonyl-CoA mutase for its B12-coenzyme.

Abstract

Methylmalonate metabolism was investigated in fibroblasts and leukocytes of two unrelated patient with a B12-nonresponsive type of congenital methylmalonic acidemia. Intact fibroblasts from both patients showed a defective metabolism of methyl-14 c-malonate to 14CO2, whereas no such defect was found in their intact peripheral leukocytes. In disrupted… (More)
