Alphaantitripsin inhibits caspase-3 activity, preventing lung endothelial cell apoptosis. A more precise diagnosis requires gene analysis using DNA based techniques 12, 14, The two patients with neonatal cholestasis EKBA and RHBP underwent a liver biopsy when they were 10 weeks and 13 weeks old, respectively, and showed eosinophilic PAS-positive, diastase-resistent globules. Acumulation of PiZ alpha 1-antitrypsin causes liver damage in transgenic mice.

Diagnosis of alphaantitrypsin deficiency by DNA analysis of children with liver disease

Alphaantitrypsin gene organization was analyzed by amplification of genoma through the polymerase chain reaction and digestion with the restriction enzymes Xmnl S allele and Taq 1 Z allele. Med Clin Barc, pp. Two novel nonradioactive polymerase chain reaction-based assays of dried blood spots, genomic DNA, or whole cells for fast, reliable detection of Z and S mutations in the Alphaantitrypsin gene.


Figures 2 and 3 peiatria the results of the amplification and digestion of the S and Z alleles, respectively. The main function of A1AT is to inhibit the action of neutrophilic elastase, a serine protease that hydrolyzes elastin fibers in the lungs Survival and FEV 1 decline in individuals with severe deficiency ofalphaantitrypsin.

Annu Rev Biochem ; Special staining was obtained using PAS periodic acid-Schiff followed by treatment with diastase.

J Parasitol, 83pp. Prog Liver Dis ;6: However, some alleles such as variants S and Z are associated with a deficient condition that attains polymorphic frequencies as Caucasian populations and cases of a null allele defjciencia which protein production is totally absent have been reported J Med Genet, 42pp.

De la Roza, F. Silverman Cold Spring Harbor perspectives in biology The presence of predominantly periportal, intrahepatocystic globules that are strongly PAS positive after diastase digestion is a anfitripsina indication of A1AT deficiency 13, 18, The alpha 1-antitrypsin gene and its mutations. Cystic fibrosis diagnoses was confirmed by both clinical and laboratory methods.

These results suggest that the presence of globules should be investigated using special deficincia in hepatic fragments obtained before the age of 12 weeks, although a negative result does not eliminate the possibility of A1AT deficiency. When neonatal cholestasis is present, it is fundamentally necessary a differential diagnosis with extrahepatic biliary atresia.
