Functional characterization of the novel intronic nucleotide change c.288+9C>T within the BCKDHA gene: understanding a variant presentation of maple syrup urine disease


Mutations in any of the three different genes—BCKDHA, BCKDHB, and DBT—encoding for the E1α, E1β, and E2 catalytic components of the branched-chain α-ketoacid dehydrogenase complex can cause maple syrup urine disease (MSUD). Disease severity ranges from the classic to the mildest variant types and precise genotypes, mostly based on missense mutations, have… (More)
