HK Utrecht: missense mutation in the active site of human hexokinase associated with hexokinase deficiency and severe nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia.
 

Author(s): Richard van Wijk, Gert Rijksen, Eric G Huizinga, Hendrik K Nieuwenhuis, Wouter W van Solinge

Journal: Blood. 2003 Jan;101(1):345-7.

 

Hexokinase deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive disease with a clinical phenotype of severe hemolysis. We report a novel homozygous missense mutation in exon 15 (c.2039C>G, HK [hexokinase] Utrecht) of HK1, the gene that encodes red blood cell-specific hexokinase-R, in a patient ...

Journal: Blood. 1983 Jan;61(1):12-8.

 

In a patient with nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia, a hexokinase deficiency was detected in the red cells (residual activity about 25% of normal) and in blood platelets (20%-35% of normal activity). Although the total hexokinase activity in lymphocytes was normal, the amount of hexokinase ...
