JLMarsh 9/96 PAH Phenylalanine hydroxylase, Liver only! PKU= BH4, tetrahydro biopterin O 2 + Phe BH2 H O 2 dihydrobiopterin reductase DHPR (near Huntingtons) Mutants = 0.8% of all PKUs 6-pyruvoyl tetrahydro pterin = 6PT 6PT Synthetase DHNP GTP GTP-CH, GTP cyclo hydrolase PKU Almost no other fate of phe -Get buildup of phe & lack of Tyr -Feed low phe, hi tyr diet then ok til development has proceeded -Note a normal female protects the fetus otherwise it probably wouldn't live -But a normal fetus in affected mother is at risk. Malignant Hyperphenylalaninemias -affect homeostasis of BH4 -BH4 used by phe & tyr->dopa & trp -> 5HT -Get deficient neurotransmitter as well as PKU tyrosine transaminase -tyrosinosis (Richner- Hanhart syndrome) pOH PP oxidase + vit C -tyrosinosis -scurvy Homogenistic acid oxidase -Alkaptonuria
