Biochemical observations on a case of hepatic fructose-1,6-diphosphatase deficiency

A case of hepatic fructose-1,6-diphosphatase deficiency is described. She presented with congenital bilateral cataracts, failure to thrive, hypoglycaemia and hyperlactacidaemia. A liver biopsy revealed normal levels of gluconeogenic enzymes except fructose-1,6-diphosphatase which was present at 30% of the level of the lower control values. The residual activity had a normal affinity for fructose-1,6-diphosphate, a decreased sensitivity for inhibition by fructose-2,6-diphosphate and an increased resistance toward conversion to the AMP-insensitive form of the enzyme. As a result of this mutation, the residual FDPase will always be maintained in the AMP-inhibited form.
