Pseudoneonatal adrenoleukodystrophy

Common Name(s)

Pseudoneonatal adrenoleukodystrophy

Peroxisomal acyl-CoA oxidase deficiency is a disorder of peroxisomal fatty acid beta-oxidation. See also D-bifunctional protein deficiency ({261515}), caused by mutation in the HSD17B4 gene ({601860}) on chromosome 5q2. The clinical manifestations of these 2 deficiencies are similar to those of disorders of peroxisomal assembly, including Zellweger cerebrohepatorenal syndrome (see {214100}) and neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy (see {601539}) ({9:Watkins et al., 1995}).

The inflammatory response in acyl-CoA oxidase 1 deficiency (pseudoneonatal adrenoleukodystrophy).
 

Author(s): H I El Hajj, A Vluggens, P Andreoletti, K Ragot, S Mandard, S Kersten, H R Waterham, G Lizard, R J A Wanders, J K Reddy, Mustapha Cherkaoui-Malki

Journal: Endocrinology. 2012 Jun;153(6):2568-75.

 

Among several peroxisomal neurodegenerative disorders, the pseudoneonatal adrenoleukodystrophy (P-NALD) is characterized by the acyl-coenzyme A oxidase 1 (ACOX1) deficiency, which leads to the accumulation of very-long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) and inflammatory demyelination. However, ...

Journal: J. Clin. Invest.. 1994 Aug;94(2):526-31.

 

We have cloned the cDNA encoding human peroxisomal acyl-CoA oxidase, the first enzyme in the peroxisomal beta-oxidation of very long chain fatty acids. Its nucleotide sequence was found to be highly homologous (85%) to the rat cDNA counterpart. An 88% homology between rat and human ...
