About Phosphoglycerate Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Phosphoglycerate Dehydrogenase Deficiency, also known as phgdh deficiency, is related to neu-laxova syndrome 1 and serine deficiency, and has symptoms including seizures An important gene associated with Phosphoglycerate Dehydrogenase Deficiency is PHGDH (Phosphoglycerate Dehydrogenase), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Neuroinflammation and glutamatergic signaling and One-carbon metabolism and related pathways. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and bone marrow, and related phenotypes are hyposerinemia and hypoglycinemia

Major Symptoms of Phosphoglycerate Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase (PDH) deficiency is a rare genetic disorder that affects the metabolism of phosphoglycerate, a crucial molecule in cell signaling pathways. The major symptoms of PDH deficiency include recurrent infections, rashes, and joint pain, as well as progressive muscle weakness and wasting. The disease is usually diagnosed in childhood and progresses rapidly, leading to significant functional decline by adulthood. Treatment options are limited, and the disease is often fatal in the absence of proper medical care.
