leucine-induced hypoglycemia

leucine-induced hypoglycemia
an autosomal recessive type of neonatal hypoglycemia caused by mutation in the SUR1 gene (locus: 11p15.1), which encodes a large membrane protein that modulates insulin release. Hypoglycemia is induced by ingestion of leucine-containing protein, which causes an exaggerated release of insulin in susceptible persons.
