Cystathionase deficiency


  • The results are presented in detail.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present three patients from two apparently unrelated old colony Mennonite families, each of whom had the hepatocerebral form of MDS together with cystathioninuria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Cystathionine is not normally present in urine and only a few cases of congenital cystathioninuria are known. Cystathioninuria has also been found in patients with sympathetic tumors or with primary hepatic tumors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Observations also are presented on excretion of cystathionine and other sulfur amino acids by patients with various types of liver disease. Received August 12, 1966. Accepted June 22, 1967.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • Although the enzyme appears to be present in the tissues of affected persons, it is inactive until an excess of vitamin B 6 is available.[britannica.com]

  • Thirty-seven patients with clinical evidence of active neuroblastoma excreted elevated levels of cystathionine before treatment was initiated; six other patients showed cystathioninuria at some time during treatment with chemo- or radiotherapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The recoveries were 80-92.4% for cystathionine and 80-100% for perhydro-1,4-thiazepine-3,5-dicarboxylic acid after ion-exchange treatment. The results agreed well with those obtained using an amino acid analyser.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Serine dehydrase activity in rat liver was elevated to a strikingly high level following the treatment with triiodothyronine, and decreased markedly following thyroidectomy.[jstage.jst.go.jp]
  • The treatment, if any is available, varies depending on the category of cystathioninuria a patient has. The vitamin B6 – responsive form is best treated by an increased consumption of vitamin B6 .[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Cystathioninuria may prove to be a benign disorder requiring no treatment. Funding and Disclosures * From the departments of Pharmacology, Pathology and Paediatrics, University of British Columbia (address reprint requests to Dr.[nejm.org]


  • Our results indicate that absence of cystathioninuria correlates with an early clinical staging and thus with a favorable prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • Grütte Published 2004 in Zeitschrift für Kinderheilkunde DOI: 10.1007/BF00446345 A secondary cystathionuria was found in two children with liver disease (cirrhosis of unknown etiology, congenital biliary atresia), in one infant with hypercalcemia due[semanticscholar.org]

  • Recent studies have shown that H2S is generated in vivo in human and animal organisms and that it participates in many pathophysiological processes.[eurekaselect.com]


  • Vitamin C, 100 mg po once/day, may also be given to help prevent thromboembolism. Various defects in the remethylation process can result in homocystinuria.[merckmanuals.com]
