Ether lipid biosynthesis: alkyl-dihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase protein deficiency leads to reduced dihydroxyacetonephosphate acyltransferase activities.


Recent studies have indicated that two peroxisomal enzymes involved in ether lipid synthesis, i.e., dihydroxyacetonephosphate acyltransferase and alkyl-dihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase, are directed to peroxisomes by different targeting signals, i.e., peroxisomal targeting signal type 1 and type 2, respectively. In this study, we describe a new human… (More)
