2; encoded by KCNJ11) (7); glucokinase (GK; encoded by GCK) (8); glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH; encoded by GLUD-1) (9); short-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (SCHAD; encoded by HADH) (10); and ectopic expression on [beta]-cell plasma membrane of SLC16A1 [encodes monocarboxylate transporter 1 (MCT1)] (11).
Five enzymes/proteins were identified as being differentially expressed in the livers of ketotic cows: expression of 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase type-2 (HCDH), acetylcoenzyme A acetyltransferase 2 (ACAT) and elongation factor Tu (EF-Tu) were down-regulated, whereas that of alpha-enolase and creatine kinase were up-regulated.
The diagnoses made were long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (confirmed by mutation analysis), carnitine transporter defect (confirmed by cultured fibroblast fatty acid oxidation), and citrullinemia (confirmed by cultured fibroblast citrulline incorporation).
In this latter case, the pattern could mimic a long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase or a trifunctional protein deficiency profile, except for the very high excretion of ketone bodies [in fatty acid oxidation defects, ketone bodies may appear increased in urine during fasting, but the ketosis remains at an inappropriately low level and the ratio of urinary adipate to 3-hydroxybutyrate is >0.
