General Discussion
Valinemia is a quite uncommon metabolic disorder. It is characterized by raised degrees of the amino acid valine in the blood and urine dued to a deficiency of the enzyme valine transaminase. This enzyme is needed in the breakdown (metabolism) of valine. Infants with valinemia usually have a lack of appetite, vomit frequently, and also fail to prosper. Reduced muscle tissue tone (hypotonia) as well as hyperactivity also take place.

The malfunction of valine involves a minimum of seven stages and a deficiency of the suitable enzyme at any of these phases results in a problem of varying seriousness and also rarity.
