Plasma amino acid analysis revealed absence of citrulline and argininosuccinic acid, low normal ornithine, and high urinary orotic acid levels consistent with proximal urea cycle defects like Ornithine Transcarbamylase deficiency (OTC), N-acetyl Glutamate Synthase deficiency (NAGS), and Carbomyl Phosphate Synthase 1 deficiency (CPS1).
MS/MS has proven to be ineffective in reliably identifying deficiencies in the urea-cycle enzymes ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) and carbamyl phosphate synthetase (CPSI) through the quantitation of citrulline, though is considerably more useful when detecting elevations in this analyte in newborns with a deficiency in argininosuccinic acid synthetase (ASAS) or argininosuccinic acid lyase (ASAL).
But there is a simpler link between the asp and argininosuccinic acid, a link that goes deeper than the toxicity of the former or the pharmacology of the latter.
