Two types of hyperprolinemia are recognized by physicians and clinical researchers. Each represents an inherited inborn error of metabolism involving the amino acid, proline.
Hyperprolinemia Type I (HP-I) is characterized by high levels of proline in the blood resulting from a deficiency of the enzyme proline oxidase, which is key to the breakdown (metabolism) of proline. There are often no clinical manifestations of HP-1.
Hyperprolinemia II (HP-II) is a rare metabolic disorder that results from the deficiency of the enzyme known as delta-pyrroline-5-carboxylate (P-5-C) dehydrogenase. This disorder results in more severe clinical manifestations than are seen in HP-I, and may be associated with mild mental retardation and seizures.
