Hyperlysinemia is an acquired condition defined by raised blood degrees of the amino acid lysine, a building block of most proteins. Hyperlysinemia is brought on by the shortage of the enzyme that damages down lysine. Hyperlysinemia usually causes no health issue, and most people with raised lysine degrees are not aware that they have this condition. Hardly ever, people with hyperlysinemia have intellectual handicap or behavior troubles. The enzyme breaks down lysine to a particle called saccharopine. Mutations in the AASS gene that hinder the breakdown of lysine cause raised degrees of lysine in the blood and urine. These increased degrees of lysine do not show up to have any negative effects on the body.
