  • Argininosuccinate lyase deficiency

    Argininosuccinate lyase (ASL) catalyzes the lysis of arginine succinate into fumarate and arginine. This reaction replenishes arginine that initiates the urea cycle. ASL deficiency thus reduces the concentration of arginine and slows down the fixation of nitrogen into urea.Symptoms of Argininosuccinate lyase DeficiencyNeonatal onset form is characterized by hyperammonemia within a few days after the bir  Read More

  • Argininosuccinic aciduria

    Argininosuccinic aciduria (ASA) is a rare inherited disorder that causes elevated blood ammonia levels.If ammonia buildup in the blood is not detected and treated promptly, it can cause brain damage and even death.It is caused by changes (mutations) in the ASL gene that result in a deficiency.ASL (argininosuccinate lyase) is an enzyme that breaks down and eliminates nitrogen from the body.  Read More
