Mitochondrial dysfunction occurs in many neurodegenerative diseases. The alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase complex (KGDHC) catalyzes a key and arguably rate-limiting step of the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA). A reduction in the activity of the KGDHC occurs in brains and cells of patients...

Maple syrup urine disease is an inherited metabolic disorder characterized by tissue accumulation of branched-chain amino acids and their corresponding keto acids in the affected children. Although this disorder is predominantly characterized by neurological symptoms, only few studies were carried...

Maple syrup urine disease is a metabolic disorder caused by mutations of the branched chain keto acid dehydrogenase complex, leading to accumulation of alpha-keto acids and their amino acid precursors in the brain. We now report that alpha-ketoisovaleric, alpha-keto-beta-methyl-n-valeric and...

The panB gene that encodes ketopantoate hydroxymethyltransferase has been cloned from Mycobacterium tuberculosis, expressed, and purified to homogeneity. 1H NMR spectroscopy was used to determine the rate of (i) tetrahydrofolate-independent hydroxymethyltransferase chemistry between formaldehyde and alpha-ketoisovalerate and (ii) deuterium exchange...
