Leu Neururological Damage Associated With MSUD Case Study
What I found most interesting were the new ideas for future studies formulated as a result and the fact that you always learn something from an experiment. Regardless of if it’s what not to do next time, the scientists still advanced in their field of study. For example, a lot of scientists suggested that classic and intermediate mice models along with norleucine were very effective in studying potential treatment and brain injury. Another fascinating thought was the fact that inbreeding is the cause for the influx of MSUD in certain populations. Norleucine, an isomer of leucine used in experimental studies of protein structure and function, was also proposed as potential treatment to prevent encephalopathy in children with MSUD during catabolic stress. I chose to study this disorder for the same reason scientists are still conducting research, little is still known about it. With a name like maple syrup urine disorder, how could you not want to figure out what the disorder entails?
