Alternate Names for Pyruvate Carboxylase Antibody
pyruvate carboxylase, mitochondrial
Pyruvate Carboxylase (PC) catalyzes an important 2-step reaction - (i) ATP-dependent carboxylation of covalently attached biotin (ii) transfer of carboxyl group to pyruvate, and this interconversion is essential for replenishment of TCA/citric acid cycle intermediates (anaplerosis). By extension, PC participates in many pathways that depend on oxaloacetate (OAA) such as gluconeogenesis, glycogen synthesis, lipogenesis, glycerogenesis, glucose-dependent insulin secretion, and synthesis of amino acids as well as neurotransmitters. With highest expression levels in liver, adipose tissue, kidney, lactating mammary gland, pancreatic islets etc, PC localize to cellular mitochondrial matrix and its activity is highly regulated by its allosteric activator acetyl-CoA. Enhanced acetyl-CoA levels indicate a need for increased OAA synthesis to replenish TCA cycle intermediates or a diversion of pyruvate for glucose synthesis in gluconeogenic tissues. PC's deficiency causes a fatal multiorgan metabolic imbalance that predominantly manifests with lactic acidemia and neurological dysfunction at an early age. Three clinical forms of PC deficiency include an infantile or mild form (Type A), a severe neonatal form (Type B), and a benign form (Type C), all of which exhibit clinical or biochemical parallals of impaired anaplerosis.
