Welcome! This forum is a place to share what we've learned about GCH1 gene mutations and the gs224 genoset.
Three homozygous mutations on the GCH1 (GTP cyclohydrolase 1) gene may cause a tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) deficiency, leading to raised phenylalanine and lowered tyrosine and dopamine. SNPedia and Promethease flag this group of mutations with the gs224 genoset. The affected SNPs have ambiguous flips which may make determining them tricky, but Promethease should interpret them correctly. You may have a BH4 deficiency if you have this double-CAT mutation on GCH1.
If you carry the gs224 genoset, please join the group so we can compare notes!
