D-bifunctional protein deficiency, a novel mutation


Journal Article

Deficiency of D-bifunctional protein causes a severe, Zellweger-like phenotype. Different mutations were found in humans causing the total or partial loss of this enzyme's function. We report a family with severe Zellweger-like syndrome with a typical presentation of neonatal hypotonia and seizures, biochemical evidence of peroxisomal disease, and a novel mutation C.1052T>G (V351G) in a homozygous state. © 2008 IOS Press.
