Plasma Amino Acid Profile

Creative Biogene provides a comprehensive range of Biofluid Biochemistry testing services to assist researchers in mitochondria-related disease studies.

The blood levels of different amino acids vary significantly in mitochondrial dysfunctional organisms, especially alanine and branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs).

  • Amino acid analysis can reveal elevated alanine, as a product of the transamination of pyruvate by alanine aminotransferase.
  • Elevated levels of the branched-chain amino acids could be an indication for an E3 deficiency; an enzyme module shared by the branched-chain amino acid dehydrogenase, 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase, and pyruvate dehydrogenase.
  • Generalized aminoaciduria is sometimes seen as a result of renal tubulopathy caused by mitochondrial defects.

A plasma amino acid profile may show an elevation of alanine level in plasma which reflects lactic acidemia and branched-chain amino acids which are catabolized in mitochondria.

Creative Biogene provides accurate plasma amino acid testing services to precisely evaluate the metabolism changes induced by mitochondria dysfunction.
