Summaries for Glycine Encephalopathy

NIH Rare Diseases : 49 Glycine encephalopathy is an inheritedmetabolic disease characterized by abnormally high levels of an amino acid called glycine. Glycine is a chemical messenger that transmits signals in the brain.  According to the symptoms the disease onset, glycine encephalopathy may be divided in:Classical neonatal form (most common): Symptoms start within a few days of life and may include poor feeding, lack of energy (lethargy), weak muscle tone (hypotonia), hiccups, breathing problems, seizures, hiccups, and coma. Infantile form: Symptoms start only after 6 months of age, as intellectual disability, abnormal movements, and behavioral problems Late onset: Symptoms include tightness or stiffness of the legs or arms (spastic diplegia), and vision loss due to a damage of the eye nerve (optic atrophy).  Transient form: Symptoms are similar to the classic form, but glycine levels decrease and the symptoms may improve within time.  Glycine encephalopathy is caused by changes (mutations) in the AMT, GLDC or GCSH genes which result in a deficiency of the enzyme that break-up the glycine. Diagnosis is based in the symptoms, the high glycine levels and the enzyme deficiency, as well as genetic testing.  Inheritance is autosomal recessive. Treatment may include sodium benzoate to reduce the levels of glycine, N-methyl D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor site antagonists, anti-seizure drugs and ketogenic diet. About half of the babies with the classic form, die within a few weeks of life and the survivors may have motor delay, very small head, seizures and stiffness. In the transient form symptoms may improve with time.  Last updated: 11/18/2017

MalaCards based summary : Glycine Encephalopathy, also known as nonketotic hyperglycinemia, is related to glycine encephalopathy with normal serum glycine and neonatal glycine encephalopathy, and has symptoms including seizures, lethargy and recurrent singultus. An important gene associated with Glycine Encephalopathy is AMT (Aminomethyltransferase), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Glycine, serine and threonine metabolism and Metabolism. The drugs Dextromethorphan and Guaifenesin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and eye, and related phenotype is Decreased shRNA abundance.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Non-ketotic hyperglycinemia: Autosomal recessive disease characterized by accumulation of a large amount of glycine in body fluid and by severe neurological symptoms.

Genetics Home Reference : 24 Glycine encephalopathy, which is also known as nonketotic hyperglycinemia or NKH, is a genetic disorder characterized by abnormally high levels of a molecule called glycine. This molecule is an amino acid, which is a building block of proteins. Glycine also acts as a neurotransmitter, which is a chemical messenger that transmits signals in the brain. Glycine encephalopathy is caused by the shortage of an enzyme that normally breaks down glycine in the body. A lack of this enzyme allows excess glycine to build up in tissues and organs, particularly the brain, leading to serious medical problems.

Disease Ontology : 12 An amino acid metabolic disorder that involves abnormally high levels of the amino acid glycine in bodily fluids and tissues.
