Ethylmalonic acid (EMA) accumulates in tissues of patients affected by short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency and ethylmalonic encephalopathy, illnesses characterized by variable neurological symptoms. In this work, we investigated the in vitro and in vivo EMA effects on Na(+), K(+)-ATPase (NAK)...

High concentrations of ethylmalonic acid are found in tissues and biological fluids of patients affected by ethylmalonic encephalopathy, deficiency of short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase activity and other illnesses characterized by developmental delay and neuromuscular symptoms. The pathophysiological mechanisms responsible for the...

Ethylmalonic encephalopathy is caused by mutations in ETHE1, a mitochondrial matrix sulfur dioxygenase, leading to failure to detoxify sulfide, a product of intestinal anaerobes and, in trace amounts, tissues. Metronidazole, a bactericide, or N-acetylcysteine, a precursor of sulfide-buffering glutathione, substantially...

Ethylmalonic aciduria is a common finding in patients affected by short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (SCAD) deficiency and other diseases characterized by encephalopathy, muscular symptomatology, and lactic acidemia. Considering that the pathophysiological mechanisms of these disorders are practically unknown and that lactic...
