Very long chain fatty acids in genetic peroxisomal disease fibroblasts: differences between the cerebro-hepato-renal (Zellweger) syndrome and adrenoleukodystrophy variants.

Very long chain fatty acids were investigated by gas chromatography in fibroblasts of patients with genetic peroxisomal diseases (cerebro-hepato-renal (Zellweger) syndrome, childhood adrenoleukodystrophy, adrenomyeloneuropathy, neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy) and of controls. Concentrations of C 26:0 were increased to about the same extent in all disorders investigated. C 26:1 concentrations, on the other hand, were considerably elevated only in the cerebro-hepato-renal syndrome. In all control, adrenoleukodystrophy, and adrenomyeloneuropathy cases the C 22:0 concentration was higher than the respective C 26:0 concentration; the reverse was found in the cerebro-hepato-renal syndrome. These differences seem to reflect different impairment of peroxisomes in the cerebro-hepato-renal syndrome and adrenoleukodystrophy variants, respectively. Additional experiments to characterize C 26:1 by thin layer chromatography, gas chromatography and mass spectrometry revealed the presence of two straight-chain C 26:1 isomers with similar fragmentation patterns.[1]
