Consensus guideline for the diagnosis and treatment of tetrahydrobiopterin (BH) deficiencies.

Orphanet J Rare Dis 2020 May 26;15(1):126. Epub 2020 May 26.

Division of Child Neurology and Metabolic Disorders, University Children's Hospital, Heidelberg, Germany.

Background: Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH) deficiencies comprise a group of six rare neurometabolic disorders characterized by insufficient synthesis of the monoamine neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin due to a disturbance of BH biosynthesis or recycling. Hyperphenylalaninemia (HPA) is the first diagnostic hallmark for most BH deficiencies, apart from autosomal dominant guanosine triphosphate cyclohydrolase I deficiency and sepiapterin reductase deficiency. Early supplementation of neurotransmitter precursors and where appropriate, treatment of HPA results in significant improvement of motor and cognitive function. Read More

Contribution of Rho-kinase and Adenosine Monophosphate-Activated Protein Kinase Signaling Pathways to Endothelium-Derived Contracting Factors Responses.

Turk J Pharm Sci 2017 Aug 15;14(2):207-212. Epub 2017 Aug 15.

Ankara University, Faculty Of Pharmacy, Department Of Pharmacology, Ankara, Turkey.

Vascular tonus is controlled by endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF), endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) and endothelium-derived contracting factor (EDCF) under physiological circumstances. In pathological conditions, impairment of endothelium-derived relaxation can be caused by both decrease in EDRF release and increase in EDCF release. The increase in EDCF is observed with diseases such as hypertension and diabetes. Read More
