Riboflavin supplementation resulted in alleviation of symptoms in 65% patients, and, most notably, improved survival was observed when commenced within the first year of life[51]. Vitamins work together in impressive ways as coenzymes or precursors to coenzymes. In view of the promising therapeutic effects of riboflavin in these disorders, early recognition and treatment including trial of riboflavin supplementation is imperative. High-dose riboflavin therapy has been found to intensify urine color to a bright yellow (flavinuria), but this is a harmless side effect. Long-term nutrient intake and 5-year change in nuclear lens opacities. 6. The clinical phenotype is variable and has been classified into neonatal onset forms, with the most severely affected patients presenting with congenital anomalies (Type I) or without anomalies (Type II), and mild and/or later onset (Type III)[138].

Other tumors such as paraganglioma/pheochromocytoma, pituitary adenoma, and renal carcinoma have also demonstrated SDHA germline mutations[117-121]. Circulation. (PubMed), 77. However, a 10-year follow up of an intervention trial in patients at high risk for gastric (stomach) cancer found that dietary supplementation with minerals and vitamins, including riboflavin (3.2 mg/day) and niacin (40 mg/day), for five years failed to decrease the incidence or mortality rate of gastric cancer (50). 158. Mitochondria are maternally inherited multifunctional double-membrane, highly dynamic cytoplasmic organelles, ubiquitously present in all cells, except erythrocytes. Hence, it has been proposed that the neurological symptoms present in the most severely affected ACAD9-deficient patients could be attributed to a deficiency in brain FAO.

ACAD9, a complex I assembly factor with a moonlighting function in fatty acid oxidation deficiencies. Inside the enterocytes, riboflavin can either be further metabolized to FMN by riboflavin kinase and subsequently to FAD by FAD synthase or released into portal blood by basolaterally expressed RFVT1 and RFVT2. Since MTHFR controls the detoxification of homocysteine and the supply of methyl groups for SAM synthesis, a reduction in its activity can affect homocysteine metabolism and disturb cellular methylation processes. Furthermore, the functions of other B-vitamin coenzymes, such as vitamin B 6 … Respiratory chain enzyme activities, when reported, showed normal activities or combined deficiencies. (PubMed), 42. 85. Riboflavin supplementation was only reported in seven patients[94,97,98,101] and was given with other supplements such as thiamine, Coenzyme Q10, creatine, and alpha lipoic.

The most common histopathologic finding was focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Two subgroups of ACAD9 deficient patients have been described, including early-onset, often lethal cardiac involvement presenting in infancy. These flavocoenzymes ensure the functionality of numerous flavoproteins including dehydrogenases, oxidases, monooxygenases, and reductases, which play pivotal roles in mitochondrial electron transport chain, β-oxidation of fatty acids, redox homeostasis, citric acid cycle, branched-chain amino acid catabolism, chromatin remodeling, DNA repair, protein folding, and apoptosis. Holmes MV, Newcombe P, Hubacek JA, et al. Clinical, biochemical and genetic spectrum of 70 patients with ACAD9 deficiency: is riboflavin supplementation effective? Another case-control study reported that individuals in the highest quintile of riboflavin nutritional status, as measured by red blood cell glutathione reductase activity, had approximately one-half the occurrence of age-related cataract as those in the lowest quintile of riboflavin status, though the results were not statistically significant (31). A large proportion (47%) of germline mutations in SDHA has been reported in gastrointestinal stromal tumors[116].

Cardiorespiratory collapse was the cause of death for a neonate who presented at 32 h of age and died at three days. Oregon State University, Updated in July 2013 by:  The relationship between riboflavin and plasma total homocysteine in the Framingham Offspring cohort is influenced by folate status and the C677T transition in the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene. Electrons derived from oxidation of pyruvate mediated by pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) and fatty acid oxidation are transferred via NADH to Complex I (FMN-dependent NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase), while electrons from succinate in the Krebs cycle, amino acid metabolism, and fatty acid oxidation are transferred to Complex II (FAD-dependent succinate-ubiquinone oxidoreductase) via FADH2. Compared to baseline measurements in this trial, both the placebo and treatment groups experienced some benefits with respect to the mean number of migraines, migraine days, or migraine index (54). Glutathione metabolism links FOXRED1 to NADH: ubiquinone oxidoreductase (complex I) deficiency: a hypothesis. (PubMed), 61. Coenzymes derived from riboflavin are termed flavocoenzymes, and enzymes that use a flavocoenzyme are called flavoproteins (2). Familial SDHA mutation associated with pituitary adenoma and pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma. The reduction in the flavoprotein MTHFR activity observed in subjects with the C677T genetic variant leads to a slight increase in plasma homocysteine concentrations; increased homocysteine levels have been associated with preeclampsia (25). 45. FAD is part of the electron transport (respiratory) chain, which is central to energy production. Although most decompensations occur in childhood, severe metabolic crises have also been reported in adulthood[138]. J Inherit Metab Dis 2016;39:545-57. Physiol Rev. Riboflavin, also a water-soluble vitamin, is an essential component of flavoproteins, which are coenzymes involved in many metabolic pathways of carbohydrate, lipid, and protein metabolism.

SLC25A32 knock-down in sensitive tumor cells resulted in inhibition of the FAD-dependent Complex II, increased succinate levels, and reduced oxygen consumption rate[32]. 18. Obstetrics. McCormick DB. The characteristic clinical features are hydrogen sulfide mediated and include vasculopathy due to diffuse microvasculature injury responsible for multiple necrotic brain lesions, which lead to early-onset psychomotor regression, seizures, and global neurological impairment that subsequently evolve to severe psychomotor delay with spastic tetraparesis. Taylor RW, Pyle A, Griffin H, Blakely EL, Duff J, et al. Complex II deficiency due to mutations in SDHA presents with variable clinical presentations and age of onset from prenatal to adulthood. 32. Such results illustrate that chronic disease risk may be influenced by complex interactions between genetic and dietary factors (see Cardiovascular disease and Cancer). Defective oxidative phosphorylation (ATP synthesis by the respiratory chain) due to complex I deficiency has been linked to a broad variety of clinical manifestations from neonatal death to late-onset neurodegenerative diseases. Data from large dietary surveys indicate that the average intake of riboflavin for men is about 2 mg/day and for women is about 1.5 mg/day; both intakes are well above the RDA. Ann Neurol 1996;39:224-32. Although these findings are preliminary, data from most studies to date suggest that riboflavin supplementation in adults might be a useful adjunct to pharmacologic therapy in migraine prevention. These Transform carbohydrates, proteins, and fats to . This review presents an overview of riboflavin metabolism, its role in mitochondrial function, primary and secondary flavocoenzyme defects associated with mitochondrial dysfunction, and the role of riboflavin supplementation in these conditions.

Dramatic improvements in exercise tolerance and endurance and biochemical abnormalities were reported in both patients following oral riboflavin supplementation[30,31]. Transient multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenation deficiency in a newborn female caused by maternal riboflavin deficiency. Such heterogeneity among studies may suggest that the effect of MTHFR 677TT genotype could be modulated by riboflavin and other relevant dietary factors that may vary considerably among different populations. Am J Physiol Cell Physiol 2008;295:C632-41. The missense mutation (c.581 G > A; p.R194H) was identified in six out of the eight patients. Indian J Med Res. However, the doses of riboflavin used in these patients may have been inadequate in ensuring long-term survival[41]. Compound heterozygous mutations in the flavoprotein gene of the respiratory chain complex II in a patient with Leigh syndrome. Experiments have indicated that the FAD cofactor is detached from Erv1 R182H during the catalytic reaction and inactivated the protein[78]. Severe riboflavin deficiency may result in decreased conversion of vitamin B6 to its coenzyme form (PLP) and decreased conversion of tryptophan to niacin (see Nutrient interactions).
