Background Information

branched chain keto acid dehydrogenase E1, alpha polypeptide (BCKDHA), the gene encoding the regulated subunit of BCKDC was only one of two primary susceptibility genes identified that affected the risk of both type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and obesity. BIX01294 transcriptionally downregulated the transcription of BCKDHA, which is essential for fueling the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. Studies have shown that KDM3A, a Jumonji histone demethylase, epigenetically regulates BCKDHA expression by binding to the BCKDHA gene promoter. Moreover, at least four genes including BCKDHA, branched chain keto acid dehydrogenase E1, beta polypeptide (BCKDHB), dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase (DLD), and dihydrolipoamide branched chain transacylase E2 (DBT) have been reported to be the causative gene for Maple syrup urine disease (MSUD).
