    Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein composition involves mainly albumin with small contributions of other proteins. Other CSF components are free amino acids; they have several functions in the central nervous system (CNS) and are important since their CSF concentrations correlate with their brain...

    Background: Patients with schizophrenia show increased brain and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations of the endogenous N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antagonist kynurenic acid (KYNA). This compound is an end-metabolite of the kynurenine pathway, and its formation indirectly depends on the...

    Background: Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) amino acid analysis is fundamental to the investigation of several inherited metabolic diseases, particularly those presenting with unexplained seizures. CSF glycine measurement is often crucial to the diagnosis of glycine encephalopathy (GE), low CSF serine...
