succinylacetone

suc·ci·nyl·ac·e·tone

(sŭk'sin-il-as'ĕ-tōn),
A minor metabolite that occurs at elevated levels in individuals with tyrosinemia IA.

succinylacetone

(sŭk-sĭn″ĭl-ăs′ĭ-tōn″)
A potentially toxic by-product of tyrosine metabolism. It accumulates in excessive concentrations in the blood of patients with type 1 tyrosinemia and is responsible for some of the symptoms of the disease.

NeoMass AAAC is used with Tandem Mass Spectrometry to detect concentrations of amino acids, free carnitine, acylcarnitines, succinylacetone and argininosuccinic acid.
This reduced dosing frequency is approved for use in patients five years of age and older who have undetectable serum and urine succinylacetone concentrations after a minimum of four weeks on a stable dosage of nitisinone.
As a result of the enzyme block, hepatotoxic intermediates such as maleyland fumarylacetoacetic acids accumulate and are ultimately metabolized to succinylacetone (SUAC), a highly specific marker for TYR1 (1) (Fig.
