A 29 YEAR OLD JEWISH MALE HAS DEVELOPED A LARGE KIDNEY STONE. HE HAS HAD NOTHING TO EAT FOR THE PAST MONTH BUT JELLO AND CHICKEN. Read the following papers to prepare for discussion: Nishijima et al. (2006) Effect of vitamin B6 deficiency on glyoxylate metabolism in rats with or without glyoxylate overload, Biomed Res 27:93-8. Runyan and Gershoff (1965) The effect of vitamin B6 deficiency in rats on the metabolism of oxalic acid precursors, J Biol Chem 240:1889-1892. Search for more recent literature that is relevant to this topic. Group discussions of this case will take place after completion of the sections on proteins, carbohydrates and nutrition/vitamins.
