We suspect that the Krebs/tricarboxylic acid cycle and propionate pathway, two energy producing pathways that intersect, interact as an association. Here we propose identifying components of this association and then assaying the components as an association. Identifying the components of this association and screening the association for enzyme activity provides a mechanism to screen new treatments for propionate pathway disorders such as propionic acidemia and methylmalonic aciduria, as well as other disorders which affect the Krebs/TCA cycle’s function.

Research

My research focuses in understanding secondary energy deficiency in individuals with the propionate organic acidemias such as Methylmalonic Acidemia and Propionic Acidemia.  People with these disorders have a number of long term complication including myopathy, arrhythmias, diabetes, metabolic strokes and cardiomyopathies which we think is related to long term energy deficiencies. They also do poorly when they need to increase their cellular energy levels during illness or other stressful situations with metabolic decompensations.
 
My basic science laboratory has examined cell lines from patients with propionate organic acidemias and controls and has identified a different responses to low and normal glucose conditions on a RNA level.  However, as a population, this change in RNA expression does not pinpoint a particular biochemical pathway beyond a general implication of mitochondrial systems. Clinically individuals appear to have long term complications in high energy organs. As a result, I am now focusing my molecular biology and biochemical studies on examining the intersection of the propionate pathway with the Krebs cycle by looking for sites of interaction and potential moving towards understanding why these patients have such energy deficiency complications. In addition, I am working presently working with our collaborators at HemoShear to design and utilize a liver model system which allows validation and identification of possible therapeutics to treat these disorders with high mortality and morbidity.  I also have established relationships with collaborators around the world through my work on guidelines treatment of propionate pathway disorders with whom we can obtain additional tissue if necessary.
