N-acetylglutamate Synthetase Deficiency. N-acetylglutamate is an obligatory allosteric activator of carbamoylphosphate synthetase I (CPS-I) synthesized in the liver mitochondria by N-acetylglutamate synthetase (NAGS). A small but increasing number of patients with deficiency of the NAGS enzyme (OMIM ) have been reported (–). In addition, N-acetylglutamate synthase (NAGS; EC ), ornithine/citrulline transporter (ORNT) and aspartate/glutamate transporter (also known as either Aralar2 or citrin) are required for the normal function of the urea cycle in mammals. The first reaction of the urea cycle is the formation of carbamylphosphate (CP). N-Acetylglutamate synthetase (NAGS) deficiency is a genetic disorder of ammonia detoxication. These disorders result in acute and chronic hyperammonemia, becoming evident in early infancy. They are associated with a high mortality and morbidity.

N-acetylglutamate synthase deficiency (NAGSD) is an extremely rare urea cycle disorder (UCD) with few adult cases so far described. Diagnosis of late-onset presentations is difficult and delayed treatment may increase the risk of severe hyperammonemia. We describe a year-old woman with recurrent headaches who experienced an acute onset of NAGSD.   N-acetylglutamate synthase deficiency (NAGS deficiency) has been described in a number of affected individuals. Symptoms mimic those of CPS1 deficiency, as CPS1 is rendered inactive in the absence of N-acetylglutamate [Caldovic et al ]. Carbamoylphosphate synthetase I deficiency (CPS1 deficiency) is the most severe of the urea cycle.

Carglumic Acid is an orally active, synthetic structural analogue of N-acetylglutamate (NAG) and carbamoyl phosphate synthetase 1 (CPS 1) activator, with ammonia lowering activity. NAG, which is formed by the hepatic enzyme N-acetylglutamate synthase (NAGS), is an essential allosteric activator of the enzyme carbamoyl phosphate synthetase 1 (CPS 1). CPS 1 plays an essential role in the urea. Abstract N-acetylglutamate synthase deficiency (NAGSD, MIM #) is an autosomal recessive disorder of the urea cycle that results from absent or decreased production of N-acetylglutamate . N-Acetylglutamate synthase (NAGS, E.C. ) is a mitochondrial enzyme that catalyzes the formation of N-acetylglutamate (NAG), an essential allosteric activator of carbamylphosphate synthetase. N-acetylglutamate synthase is stimulated by _____. When there are adequate amounts of ____ and _____, the synthesis of ____ _____ and the urea cycle will be stimulated. Deficiency of carbamoyl synthase 1 or N-acetylglutamate synthase results in what? elevated ammonia and glutamine only. The ICU Book Tidbits. 49 terms. JakeRipp. THIS SET.
