Evidence for increased oxidative stress in peroxisomal D-bifunctional protein deficiency.

Peroxisome biogenesis disorders (PBDs) and D-bifunctional protein (D-BP) deficiency are two types of inherited peroxisomal disorders. Patients with a PBD lack functional peroxisomes and patients with D-BP deficiency lack the enzyme, which is responsible for the second and third step of the peroxisomal beta-oxidation. The clinical presentation of these… CONTINUE READING
