MalaCards based summary: Carnitine Deficiency, Systemic Primary, also known as systemic primary carnitine deficiency, is related to dilated cardiomyopathy and cardiomyopathy, and has symptoms including muscular hypotonia, lethargy and coma. An important gene associated with Carnitine Deficiency, Systemic Primary is SLC22A5 (Solute Carrier Family 22 Member 5), and among its related pathways are Fatty acid metabolism and Import of palmitoyl-CoA into the mitochondrial matrix. Affiliated tissues include liver, heart and kidney, and related mouse phenotype homeostasis/metabolism.
Disease Ontology:11 An amino acid metabolic disorder that involves defective proteins called carnitine transporters, which bring carnitine into cells and prevent its escape from the body preventing the body cannot utilize fats for energy.
Genetics Home Reference:25 Primary carnitine deficiency is a condition that prevents the body from using certain fats for energy, particularly during periods without food (fasting). Carnitine, a natural substance acquired mostly through the diet, is used by cells to process fats and produce energy.
NIH Rare Diseases:47 Primary carnitine deficiency is a genetic condition that prevents the body from using certain fats for energy, particularly during periods without food (fasting). The nature and severity of signs and symptoms may vary, but they most often appear during infancy or early childhood and can include severe brain dysfunction (encephalopathy), cardiomyopathy, confusion, vomiting, muscle weakness, and hypoglycemia. Some individuals may only have fatigability in adulthood, or no symptoms at all. This condition is caused by mutations in the SLC22A5 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. Treatment and prevention of symptoms typically includes oral L-carnitine supplementation. Last updated: 7/9/2012
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Systemic primary carnitine deficiency: Autosomal recessive disorder of fatty acid oxidation caused by defective carnitine transport. Present early in life with hypoketotic hypoglycemia and acute metabolic decompensation, or later in life with skeletal myopathy or cardiomyopathy.
