1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Polaris Group announced today that data from a recent publication in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA(PNAS) demonstrate for the first time that treatment by Polaris lead product candidate ADI-PEG 20 (pegylated arginine deiminase) induces cytotoxic autophagy in prostate cancer cells deficient in the enzyme argininosuccinate synthetase (ASS1).
On the other hand, in uricotelic species, this reaction is the only path of endogenous synthesis of Arg, through the catalytic action of argininosuccinate lyase and argininosuccinate synthetase on citrulline.
[5] Human genes: DMD, dystrophin (muscular dystrophy, Duchenne and Becker types); GLDC glycine dehydrogenase (decarboxylating); SLC25A13, solute carrier family 25, member 13 (citrin); ARC811, ATP-binding cassette, sub-family B (MDR/TAP), member 11; ATP881, ATPase, class I, type 8B, member 1; OTC, ornithine carbamoyltransferase; CPS1, carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 1, mitochondrial; CY88, cytochrome b-245, beta polypeptide (chronic granulomatous disease); XK, X-linked Kx blood group (McLeod syndrome); RPGR, retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator; MECP2, methyl CpG binding protein 2 (Rett syndrome); A551, argininosuccinate synthetase 1; ASL, argininosuccinate lyase; ARC84, ATP-binding cassette, sub-family B (MDR/TAP), member 4.
These include carbamoyl phosphate synthetase I (CPS I) deficiency, N-acetylglutamate synthetase (NAGS) deficiency, ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency, argininosuccinate synthetase (ASS) deficiency (which is also known as citrullinemia), argininosuccinate lyase (ASL) deficiency and arginase 1 deficiency (hyperargininemia).
