Plasmalogens represent a unique type of phospholipids characterized by the presence of a vinyl-ether bond at the sn-1 position of the glycerol backbone. Peroxisomes are essential in their biosynthesis. Their suggested functions include protection against oxidative stress, participation in signal transduction, membrane fusion events, cholesterol transport and membrane trafficking, processes known to be disturbed in sphingolipidoses. We here report on red blood cell membrane plasmalogen levels in… Expand
