Phenylketonuria When phenylalanine hydroxylase is deficient, Phenylalanine gets deaminated. Phenylpyruvate accumulates in blood, tissue, and urine. Phenyllactate and Phenylacetate found in urine. Phenylketonuria leads to: Mental retardation Smaller brain, Reduced myelination of nerves Hyperactive reflexes Also: high [Phe] inhibits melanine synthesis          -> lighter skin) Treatment: -> phenylalanine reduced diet

Chapter 18: Summary Amino acids from protein are an important  energy source  in carnivorous animals Catabolism of amino acids involves transfer of the amino group via PLP-dependent  aminotransferases to a donor such as  α -ketoglutarate  to yield L-glutamate L-glutamate and L-glutamine  can be used to synthesize new amino acids, or it can dispose of  excess nitrogen as ammonia  In most mammals, toxic  ammonia  is quickly recaptured into carbamoyl phosphate and passed  into the  urea cycle
