Abstract
Methylmalonic acidemia (MMA) is an autosomal recessive metabolic disease. MMA results from a deficiency of L-methylmalonyl-CoA mutase (encoded by MUT), its cofactor 5-deoxyadenosylcobalamin (MMAA, MMAB, and MMADHC), or a deficiency of methylmalonyl CoA-epimerase (MCEE). We report the case of a 5-day-old infant with MMA in which a missense and a novel nonsense mutation in MUT were present. Direct sequencing analysis of MUT revealed a heterozygous c.1106G>A (p.Arg369His) mutation in exon 6 and a heterozygous c.362_368dupAGTTCTA (p.Tyr123*) mutation in exon 2; the latter results in a premature stop codon.
Key Words: Methylmalonic acidemia, L-methylmalonyl-CoA mutase, Nonsense mutation
