Inherited defects in the peroxisomal ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ALDP) lead to the lethal peroxisomal disorder X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD), for which no efficient treatment has been established so far. Three other peroxisomal ABC transporters currently are known: adrenoleukodystrophy-related protein(More)
Inherited defects in the X-chromosomal adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD; ABCD1) gene are the genetic cause of the severe neurodegenerative disorder X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD). Biochemically the accumulation of very long-chain fatty acids, caused by impaired peroxisomal beta-oxidation, is the pathognomonic characteristic of the disease. Due to the(More)
