Partial biotinidase deficiency is usually due to the D444H mutation in the biotinidase gene.

Mutation (Q456H) is the most common cause of profound biotinidase deficiency in children ascertained by newborn screening in the United States.

Mutation in a putative glycosylation site (N489T) of biotinidase in the only known Japanese child with biotinidase deficiency.

Arg538 to Cys mutation in a CpG dinucleotide of the human biotinidase gene is the second most common cause of profound biotinidase deficiency in symptomatic children.
