Pleiotropic role of Drosophila phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase in autophagy and...
PLoS Genetics; Delos Santos K, Kim M et. al.

Sep 6th, 2019 - Phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase (PRPS) is a rate-limiting enzyme whose function is important for the biosynthesis of purines, pyrimidines, and pyridines. Importantly, while missense mutations of PRPS1 have been identified in neurological d...

X-linked Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 5 with recurrent weakness after febrile illness.
Brain & Development; Nishikura N, Yamagata T et. al.

Sep 5th, 2018 - X-linked Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 5 (CMTX5) is an X-linked disorder characterized by early-onset sensorineural hearing impairment, peripheral neuropathy, and progressive optic atrophy. It is caused by a loss-of-function mutation in the pho...

A profound computational study to prioritize the disease-causing mutations in PRPS1 gene.
Metabolic Brain Disease; Agrahari AK, Sneha P et. al.

Oct 20th, 2017 - Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is one of the most commonly inherited congenital neurological disorders, affecting approximately 1 in 2500 in the US. About 80 genes were found to be in association with CMT. The phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synth...

Treatment of Lesch-Nyhan disease with S-adenosylmethionine: experience with five young ...
Brain & Development; Chen BC, Balasubramaniam S et. al.

Sep 24th, 2013 - Lesch-Nyhan disease (LND) is a rare X-linked recessive neurogenetic disorder caused by deficiency of the purine salvage enzyme hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT, EC which is responsible for recycling purine bases into purine nu...
