  • Branched chain ketonuria i

    Branched-chain ketonuria, also known as maple syrup urine disorder, is a metabolic disorder caused by the abnormal activity of the Branched-Chain alpha-Keto Acid Dehydrogenase (BCKAD) complex. The enzyme is responsible for the metabolism of branched-chain amino acids. The deficiency of the enzymes leads to the accumulation of the substrate in plasma and urine. The high levels of keto acids lead to serious neurological manifest  Read More
