Metabolic impact of pathogenic variants in the mitochondrial glutamyl-tRNA synthetase EARS2.

J Inherit Metab Dis 2021 Apr 14. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Children's Medical Center Research Institute, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA.

Glutamyl-tRNA synthetase 2 (encoded by EARS2) is a mitochondrial aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase required to translate the 13 subunits of the electron transport chain encoded by the mitochondrial DNA. Pathogenic EARS2 variants cause combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency, subtype 12 (COXPD12), an autosomal recessive disorder involving lactic acidosis, intellectual disability and other features of mitochondrial compromise. Patients with EARS2 deficiency present with variable phenotypes ranging from neonatal lethality to a mitigated disease with clinical improvement in early childhood. Read More

A Novel Homozygous TRNT1 Mutation in a Child With an Early Diagnosis of Common Variable Immunodeficiency Leading to Mild Hypogammaglobulinemia and Hemolytic Anemia.

J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2021 Apr 9. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Departments of Pediatrics Medical Genetics, Ege University Faculty of Medicine, Izmir, Turkey.

Although sideroblastic anemias (SAs) may be associated with different etiologies, deterioration of mitochondrial heme biosynthesis in bone marrow erythroid cells is a general abnormality. Congenital SA associated with immunodeficiency, periodic fever, and developmental delay is because of loss-of-function mutations in the TRNT1 gene. We report a patient with a novel homozygous mutation in the TRNT1 gene presenting with anemia with siderocytes, hypogammaglobulinemia, hepatosplenomegaly, and brittle hair but without periodic fever or developmental delay.

Association Between the CYP2C9 Genotype and Hypoglycemia Among Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Receiving Sulfonylurea Treatment: A Meta-analysis.

Clin Ther 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

College of Pharmacy and Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Purpose: Two common variants, CYP2C9*2 (Arg144Cys, rs1799853) and CYP2C9*3 (Ile359Leu, rs1057910), are known to reduce the catalytic function of the CYP2C9 enzyme. Because impaired catalytic function is likely to affect sulfonylurea metabolism, it is predictable that CYP2C9 loss-of-function alleles may increase the risk of sulfonylurea-induced hypoglycemia. This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to assess the association between CYP2C9 genotype and hypoglycemia among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) receiving sulfonylurea.
