Loss-of-function variants in the PYRC2 gene cause hypomyelinating leukodystrophy 10 (HLD10), but the associated pathogenic mechanisms are unknown. In this issue of Neuron, Escande-Beillard et al. (2020) reveal that PYRC2 is a key enzyme for proper brain development and a regulator of glycine homeostasis, uncovering hyperglycinemia as a driver of HLD10 pathogenesis.
