A new metabolic disorder characterised by the excessive excretion of β-alanine, 3-hydroxypropionic acid,R-andS-3-amino- and 3-hydroxyisobutyric acids andS-2-(hydroxymethyl)butyric acid is probably due to deficient activities of malonic, methylmalonic and ethylmalonic semialdehyde dehydrogenases. These dehydrogenation reactions could be mediated by one enzyme, or by enzymes with a common subunit, and bothR- andS-methylmalonic semialdehydes seem to be equally affected. The patient is now aged 4… CONTINUE READING
