NIH Rare Diseases:47 N-acetylglutamate synthase deficiency is type of urea cycle disorder. It causes toxic levels of ammonia to accumulate in the blood. Signs and symptoms in newborns may include a lack of energy, unwillingness to eat, seizures, unusual body movements, and poorly controlled breathing or body temperature. Complications may include coma, developmental delay, and learning disability. Some people have a less severe form of the deficiency with earliest symptoms manifesting later in life, particularly following high-protein meals, illness, or other stress. Signs and symptoms may include sudden vomiting, lack of coordination, confusion, and coma. N-acetylglutamate synthase deficiency is caused by mutations in the NAGS gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. Last updated: 12/17/2009
MalaCards based summary: N-Acetylglutamate Synthase Deficiency, also known as nags deficiency, is related to aspartylglucosaminuria and hyperammonemia, and has symptoms including aggressive behavior, seizures and lethargy. An important gene associated with N-Acetylglutamate Synthase Deficiency is NAGS (N-Acetylglutamate Synthase).
Genetics Home Reference:25 N-acetylglutamate synthase deficiency is an inherited disorder that causes ammonia to accumulate in the blood. Ammonia, which is formed when proteins are broken down in the body, is toxic if the levels become too high. The nervous system is especially sensitive to the effects of excess ammonia.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 N-acetylglutamate synthase deficiency: Rare autosomal recessively inherited metabolic disorder leading to severe neonatal or late-onset hyperammonemia without increased excretion of orotic acid. Clinical symptoms are somnolence, tachypnea, feeding difficulties, a severe neurologic presentation characterized by uncontrollable movements, developmental delay, visual impairment, failure to thrive and hyperammonemia precipitated by the introduction of high-protein diet or febrile illness.
