This additional testing confirmed increased orotic acid, low citrulline, and elevated ammonia levels.
Under conditions where CP synthesis is low, the CP available to the cell is utilized by the orotic acid pathway for the synthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides due to the greater affinity of ACTase for the existing CP (O'Neal and Naylor, 1976; Jacques and Sung, 1981).
As can be seen, 15 (glucose, lactate, pyruvate, acetoacetate, BHBA, fumaric acid, citric acid, choline, glycine, proline, isoleucine, leucine, urea, creatinine, and orotic acid) of the 33 potential biomarkers were also discovered in blood or milk in our previous studies [4,5].

The purines (except 2-deoxyadenosine), orotic acid, pseudouridine, uridine, 2-deoxyuridine, 5-hydroxymethyluracil, and thymidine were ionized in negative ionization mode.
Orotic acid (ORA) is an important biochemical marker for uridine monophosphate synthase deficiency, an autosomal recessive disease characterized by macrocytic hypochromic megaloblastic anemia, growth retardation, orotic aciduria, and crystalluria (1).
An IS mixture of the compounds of interest (580 [micro]mol/L 1,3-[15.sup.N.sub.2] uracil; 567 [micro]mol/L a,a,a,6-[sup.2][H.sub.4]thymine; 482 [micro]mol/L 1,3-[15.sup.N.sub.2] orotic acid; 604 [micro]mol/L ribose-1-[sup.13]C-uridine; 640 [micro]mol/L methyl- [sup.13]C-thymidine; 575 [micro]mol/L 8-[sup.13]C-adenine; and 513 [micro]mol/L ribose-1-[sup.13]C-adenosine) was prepared in 0.01 mol/L [NH.sub.4]OH adjusted to pH 7.15 with 10 mol/L formic acid.
At pH >10, almost complete resolution was achieved, but the very high electrophoretic mobility of orotic acid (OA) prolonged the separation.
Increased orotic acid (95 [micro]mol/mmol creatinine; reference, <10 [micro]mol/mmol creatinine) was observed in case 1, but not in case 2.
Phenylpyruvic acid appeared at 4.93 min and orotic acid at 4.83 min; however, their appearances are very different.
