    Methylmalonic acidemia is a disorder in which the body cannot break down certain proteins and fats. The result is a buildup of a substance called methylmalonic acid in the blood. This condition is passed down through families. Methylmalonic acid is a substance produced when proteins, called amino acids, in the body break down. The health care provider may order this test if there are signs of certain genetic disorders, such as methylmalonic acidemia.

Isolated methylmalonic acidemia/aciduria, the topic of this GeneReview, is caused by complete or partial deficiency of the enzyme methylmalonyl-CoA mutase (mut0 enzymatic subtype or mut– enzymatic subtype, respectively), a defect in the transport or synthesis of its cofactor, adenosyl-cobalamin (cblA, cblB, or cblD-MMA), or deficiency of the enzyme.

Methylmalonic acidemia (MMA) is a rare and serious genetic disorder that affects multiple body systems. It can potentially cause coma and death, particularly if not correctly diagnosed and treated.

Due to a genetic defect, the body is unable to properly process certain parts of proteins, leading to the symptoms of the condition. Methylmalonic-coenzyme A mutase is a vitamin B dependent enzyme involved in the catabolism of leucine, isoleucine, and valine; its deficiency leads to increased Methylmalonic acidemia book of MMA in plasma and urine.

Because of secondary inhibition of propionyl-CoA carboxylase, propionic acid also accumulates, as do other organic acids.

Methylmalonic and propionic acidemia (MMA/PA) are inborn errors of metabolism characterized by accumulation of propionic acid and/or methylmalonic acid due to deficiency of methylmalonyl-CoA mutase (MUT) or propionyl-CoA carboxylase (PCC).

MMA has an estimated incidence of~1: 50, and PA of~’Patients presentCited by: Methylmalonic acidemia can occur due to deficiencies in the methyl malonate or cobalamin pathways. Isolated methylmalonic acidemia is due to methylmalonyl coenzyme A mutase deficiency.

Cobalamin is a cofactor of this enzyme and of the enzyme methionine synthetase. As a result, isolated methylmalonic acidemia may also occur from cobalamin. Isolated methylmalonic acidemia (MMA) refers to a group of inborn errors of organic acid metabolism caused by impaired conversion of methylmalonyl-CoA to succinyl-CoA.

Individuals with MMA experience both acute and chronic neurological complications. The pathophysiology likely reflects impaired energy metabolism in the mitochondria leading to neuronal toxicity in. In pediatric patients, markedly elevated methylmalonic acid values indicate a probable diagnosis of methylmalonic acidemia.

Additional confirmatory testing must be performed. In adults, moderately elevated values indicate a likely cobalamin (vitamin B12) deficiency. Methylmalonic acidemia can be caused by an inherited deficiency of methylmalonyl-CoA mutase, an adenosylcobalamin-requiring enzyme that converts l-methylmalonyl-CoA to succinyl-CoA (Figure ), or in the metabolic pathway that catalyzes the biosynthesis of adenosylcobalamin from vitamin B 12 (Figure and Table ).When the latter defect occurs in a proximal.

The health care provider may order this test if there are signs of certain genetic disorders, such as methylmalonic acidemia. Testing for this disorder is often done as part of a newborn screening exam. Methylmalonic Acidaemia (MMA) also known as methylmalonic aciduria is a rare life-threatening genetic disorder present from birth.

In MMA, the body is unable to break down 4 amino acids (methionine, threonine, isoleucine and valine) and certain fatty acids. This causes a build up of methylmalonic acid and other harmful substances in the body and can [ ].

Methylmalonic Acidemia(MMA) Methylmalonic Acidemia(MMA) is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder. It is a classical type of organic result of this condition is the inability to properly digest specific fats and proteins, which in turn leads to a buildup of a toxic level of methylmalonic acid in the blood.

This chapter discusses methylmalonic acidemia and propionic acidemia, including clinical features, biochemical abnormalities, factors to be considered in nutritional evaluation and treatment, dietary management, other treatments, monitoring, and long-term outcomes.
