Abstract

The irreversibly crippling disease neurolathyrism is caused by prolonged over-consumption of Lathyrus sativus seed. The molecular mechanism of toxicity is unclear and more biochemical information is needed. The urinary amino acids from 5 recent patients and 9 healthy subjects in Ethiopi...read more
