Enzyme Defect Diagnosis Extra
Immotile cilia due to a dynein arm defect. Results in male and female infertility (sperm immotile), bronchiectasis, and recurrent sinusitis, associated with situs invertus
Hereditary defect of renal tubular amino acid transporter for cysteine, ornithine, arginine, and lysine in the PCT of the kidneys Autosomal recessive
Congenital microdeletion of short arm of chromosome 5 Microcephaly, moderate to severe mental retardation, high-pitched crying/mewing, epicanthal folds, cardiac abnormalities
Microtubule polymerization defect resulting in decreased fusion of phagosomes and lysosomes. Results in recurrent pyogenic infections, partial albinism, and peripheral neuropathy

Blocked degradation of branched amino acids (Ile, Leu, Val) due to decreased alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase Causes severe CNS defects, mental retardation, and death
Deletion of VHL gene (tumor suppressor) on chromosome 3.Results in constitutive expression of HIF transcription factors and activation of angiogenic growth factors.
Enzyme Defect Diagnosis Extra
Failure of addition of mannose-6-phosphate to lysosome proteins. Inherited lysosomal storage disorder. Results in coarse facial features, clouded corneas, restricted joint movement, and high plasma levels of lysosomal enzymes. Often fatal in childhood
