Peroxisome = Membrane-enclosed organelle involved in β-oxidation of very-long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) (strictly peroxisomal process).
Autosomal recessive disorder of peroxisome biogenesis due to mutated PEX genes.
Hypotonia, seizures, hepatomegaly, early death.
So I guess now I know that this is Zellweger syndrome which is a disorder of biogenesis of peroxisomes. But would there have been a way to know this without knowing about this syndrome?
I guess if you knew that peroxisomes are involved in beta-oxidation of VLCFAs then you would've known why they are building up in the liver.
Can anyone explain why the hypotonia, jaundice, and facial problems occur?
