Amniocentesis was performed in two women heterozygous for adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). One fetus was male, and the hexacosanoic acid (C26) level in the cultured amniotic cells was 0.808 microgram per mg of protein, compared to 0.104 +/- 0.069 (S.D.) in controls.

Peroxisomes are organelles responsible for multiple metabolic pathways including, the biosynthesis of plasmalogens, a class of phospholipids, and the beta-oxidation of very-long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA). Lack of peroxisomes or dysfunction in any of their normal functions is the cellular basis
P Aubourg et al.
The New England journal of medicine, 329(11), 745-752 (1993-09-09)
Adrenomyeloneuropathy is an X-linked recessive disorder characterized by myelopathy, peripheral neuropathy, and cerebral demyelination, which develop in association with the accumulation of very-long-chain fatty acids. The administration of oleic and erucic acids inhibits the synthesis of very-long-chain fatty acids. Recently

A fast gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) method with minimum sample preparation is described for early diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB). The automated procedure is based on the injection of sputum samples which are then methylated inside the GC injector using thermally

Adrenoleukodystrophy, a sex-linked peroxisomal disorder that results in the impaired oxidation of long-chain saturated fatty acids and causes neurologic impairment, is a rare cause of Addison's disease in children. Adrenomyeloneuropathy is the name given to a biochemically identical but milder
