The following article is from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979). It might be outdated or ideologically biased.



an enzyme that catalyzes the transport of certain functional groups from one part of a molecule to another. The conversion of glucose-6-phosphate to glucose-1-phosphate during glycolysis is catalyzed by phosphoglucomutase (phosphotransferase), a mutase that carries out the intramolecular transport of phosphate groups.

Methylmalonic acidurias (MMAurias) are a heterogeneous group of inherited metabolic disorders (IMDs) leading to increased urinary methylmalonic acid excretion.1 The aetiology of MMAurias includes isolated and combined with hyperhomocystenaemia.2Isolated MMAuria is caused by complete or partial deficiency of the enzyme methylmalonyl-CoA mutase (MCM) usually with normal serum methionine concentration.3,4 In intracellular Cobalamin-related remethylation disorders (Cb1-RD), MMAuria and hyperhomocystenaemia are present.
