Dephosphorylated substrates 5-amino-4-imidazole-N-succino¬carboxamide (SAICA) riboside and succinyladenosine (SAdo) accumulate in body fluids of patients with ADSL deficiency. The content of succinylpurines in cerebrospinal fluid of patients exceeds 100 µmol/l and is two orders of magnitude higher in CSF compared to blood levels. It makes extracerebellar sources of the high concentration of the compounds in CSF unlikely. However, activity of PDNS in adult brain is considered minimal.
We report here results of studies using cultured oligodendroglia and direct biochemical analysis of white matter obtained at autopsy from a patients with severe form of ADSL deficiency. In vitro incorporation study revealed intracellular concentration of succinylpurines of up 100 µmol/l. The contribution of compounds newly synthesized was very high (up to 25%). The analysis of white mater from autopsy revealed extremely high concentration of SAdo and SAICAR (685 and 3124 µmol/g wet weight, respectively; ratio 0.18) exceeding concentration of sum of adenine nucleotides (49 µmol/g wet weight) by orders of magnitude.
Oligodendroglia is responsible for neurological symptoms of ADSL deficiency and provides useful model for development of treatment.
