原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Genetic or nutritional disorders in homocysteine (Hcy) metabolism elevate Hcy-thiolactone and cause heart and brain diseases. Hcy-thiolactone has been implicated in these diseases because it has the ability to modify protein lysine residues and generate toxic N -Hcy-proteins with auto-immunogenic, pro-thrombotic, and amyloidogenic properties. Bleomycin hydrolase (Blmh) has the ability to hydrolyze l -Hcy-thiolactone (but not d -Hcy-thiolactone) to Hcy in vitro, but whether this reflects a physiological function has been unknown. Here, we show that Blmh −/− mice excreted in urine 1.8-fold more Hcy-thiolactone than wild-type Blmh +/+ animals ( P = 0.02). Hcy-thiolactone was elevated 2.3-fold in brains ( P = 0.004) and 2.0-fold in kidneys ( P = 0.047) of Blmh −/− mice relative...
