Abstract:

Phosphofructokinase deficiency (Tarui disease, glycogen storage disease VII, GSD VII) stands out among all the GSDs. PFK deficiency was the first recognized disorder that directly affects glycolysis. Ever since the discovery of the disease in 1965, a wide range of biochemical, physiological and molecular studies of the disorder have greatly expanded our understanding of the function of normal muscle, general control of glycolysis and glycogen metabolism. The studies of PFK deficiency vastly enriched the field of glycogen storage diseases, as well as the field of metabolic and neuromuscular disorders. This article cites a historical overview of this clinical entity and the progress that has been made in molecular genetic area. We will also present the results of a search in-silico, which allowed us to identify a previously unknown sequence of the human platelet PFK gene (PFK-P). In addition, we will describe phylogenetic analysis of evolution of PFK genes.

More about this publication?
  • Current Molecular Medicine is an interdisciplinary journal focused on providing the readership with current and comprehensive reviews on fundamental molecular mechanisms of disease pathogenesis, the development of molecular-diagnosis and/or novel approaches to rational treatment. The reviews should be of significant interest to basic researchers and clinical investigators in molecular medicine. Periodically the journal will invite guest editors to devote an issue on a basic research area that shows promise to advance our understanding of the molecular mechanism(s) of a disease or has potential for clinical applications.
