Familial hyperlysinemia with lysine-ketoglutarate reductase insufficiency.


Fibroblasts grown in tissue culture from the skin of normal subjects have lysine-ketoglutarate reductase activity (lysine: alpha-ketoglutarate: triphosphopyridine nucleotide (TPNH) oxidoreductase (epsilon-N-[L-glutaryl-2]-L-lysine forming)). The activity of the enzyme is considerably reduced in the skin fibroblasts grown from three siblings with… (More)
