Chair Mike Gibson had two citations in the month of October. The first publication was “4-Hydroxybutyric aciduria associated with catheter usage: A diagnostic pitfall in the identification of SSADH deficiency.” He coauthored the publication with five colleagues. The paper dealt with diagnostic pitfalls in a rare disease that Gibson’s lab has studied for almost 30 years and was published in “Mol Genet Metab,” Oct. 7.
Gibson coauthored a second paper, “Succinic Semialdehyde Dehydrogenase (SSADH): Biochemical-Molecular-Clinical Disease Mechanisms, Redox Regulation and Functional Significance,” with six colleagues, in “Antioxidants and Redox Signaling,” which is considered the premier journal in the field of oxidative stress and damage in mammalian biological systems. The paper was published Oct. 25.
