Correlation between the molecular effects of mutations at the dimer interface of alanine–glyoxylate aminotransferase leading to primary hyperoxaluria type I and the cellular response to vitamin B6

Primary hyperoxaluria type I (PH1) is a rare disease caused by the deficit of liver alanine–glyoxylate aminotransferase (AGT). AGT prevents oxalate formation by converting peroxisomal glyoxylate to glycine. When the enzyme is deficient, progressive calcium oxalate stones deposit first in the urinary tract and then at the systemic level. Pyridoxal 5… CONTINUE READING
