Regulation of the Mitotic-Activated Protein Kinase (MAPK) via Adenosine Deaminase (ADA) in the Developing Drosophila Eye.
Scientists currently know of more than 30 variations of the gene that produces adenosine deaminase, an enzyme that metabolizes adenosine.
A research team from United States and China suggests adenosine deaminase enzyme therapy could successfully prevent or treat penile fibrosis in men with priapism.
MSUD is a genetic defect that is exhibited by an error at several points in the metabolic pathway (as is true for, say, phenyketonuria, PKU), it can be treated by diet (again as can PKU) and recently, thanks to our new knowledge of genetics and the human genome and technology developed for treatment of other inborn errors such as adenosine deaminase deficiency, gene therapy is available.
All 10 children who had SCID caused by a lack of adenosine deaminase were still alive a median of four years after the missing enzyme was replaced, Maria-Grazia-Roncarolo, MD, of the San Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy in Milan, Italy, and colleagues reported in the January 29 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
