Summaries for Beta-Ureidopropionase Deficiency

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 75 Beta-ureidopropionase deficiency: An inborn error of metabolism due to a defect in pyrimidine degradation. It is characterized by muscular hypotonia, dystonic movements, scoliosis, microcephaly and severe developmental delay. Patients show strongly elevated levels of N-carbamyl-beta-alanine and N-carbamyl-beta-aminoisobutyric acid in plasma, cerebrospinal fluid and urine.

MalaCards based summary : Beta-Ureidopropionase Deficiency, also known as deficiency of beta-ureidopropionase, is related to status epilepticus and dihydropyrimidinase deficiency. An important gene associated with Beta-Ureidopropionase Deficiency is UPB1 (Beta-Ureidopropionase 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Pyrimidine metabolism and Drug metabolism - other enzymes. Affiliated tissues include appendix, liver and colon, and related phenotypes are bifid scrotum and microcephaly

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Beta-ureidopropionase deficiency is a disorder that causes excessive amounts of molecules called N-carbamyl-beta-aminoisobutyric acid and N-carbamyl-beta-alanine to be released in the urine. Neurological problems ranging from mild to severe also occur in some affected individuals.

OMIM : 57 Beta-ureidopropionase deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive inborn error of metabolism due to a defect in pyrimidine degradation. Less than 10 patients have been reported, and the phenotype can range from severe neurologic involvement with mental retardation and seizures to normal neurologic development (Yaplito-Lee et al., 2008).
