Vitamin-Responsive Genetic Abnormalities

  • S. Harvey Mudd
Part of the Advances in Nutritional Research book series (ANUR, volume 4)


This review will focus on certain aspects of vitamin-responsive genetic disorders. To be included, a condition must be gentically determined, and its characteristic chemical and/or biochemical manifestations must be alleviated by larger than physiological amounts of a particular vitamin or by use of an unusual route of administration of that vitamin. Such conditions have recently attracted much attention from human geneticists and from those concerned clinically and biochemically with inborn errors of metabolism. Previous reviews provide adequate coverage of the clinical features of these conditions and of many details concerning the history, structure, and the biochemical role of the particular vitamins to be discussed (Frimpter et al., 1969; Mudd, 1971, 1974a, 1977; Scriver, 1973; Rosenberg, 1976). In general, these matters will be beyond the scope of this chapter. Here, emphasis will be on the general properties that characterize vitamin-responsive conditions, the mechanism or mechanisms underlying vitamin responsiveness, and the implications of our present understanding of these matters both for those concerned with individual patients with metabolic diseases and for those concerned with more general aspects of human nutrition.
