  • Menkes disease is an X-linked, recessive disorder of copper metabolism that occurs in approximately 1 in 200,000 live births. The condition is characterized by skeletal abnormalities, severe mental retardation, neurologic degeneration, and patient mortality in early childhood. The symptoms of Menkes disease result from a deficiency of serum copper and copper-dependent enzymes. A candidate gene for the disease has been isolated and designated MNK. The MNK gene codes for a P-type cation… CONTINUE READING
