Analysis of liver obtained at autopsy from a patient with familial hyperlysinemia revealed a severe deficiency in lysine ketoglutarate reductase, saccharopine dehydrogenase, and saccharopine oxidoreductase. The deficiencies were confirmed in skin fibroblasts from two siblings with the disease and a third patient from an unrelated family.
