Cystathionine Beta Synthase or CBS is an enzyme in the methionine catabolic pathway.[1]

Function[edit | edit source]

Methionine metabolic pathways
Key
SAM: S-adenosylmethionine (SAM-e)
SAH: S-adenosylhomocysteine
THF: tetrahydrofolate
MeCbl: methylcobalamin
1. Cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS)
2. methionine adenosyltransferase I/III
3. methionine adenosyltransferase II
4. glycine N-methyltransferase
5. numerous methyltransferases
6. S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase
7. methionine synthase
8. betaine-homocysteine methyltransferase
9. Serine hydroxymethyltransferase
10. methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase
11. cystathionine gamma-lyase

CBS deficiency[edit | edit source]

CBS deficiency is rare and physical signs commonly associated with it are:

  • eye lens dislocated (ectopia lentis) and/or severe short-sighted vision
  • being very tall, with long limbs similar to in Marfan's syndrome, osteoporosis and bone deformities (e.g., pectus excavatum or carinatum, genu valgum and scoliosis)
  • intellectual disability or developmental delay, seizures, psychiatric and behavioural problems and extrapyramidal signs
  • Vascular system: blood clots moving to obstruct blood vessels (thromboembolism)[1]
