Genetics Home Reference:21 Abetalipoproteinemia is an inherited disorder that affects the absorption of dietary fats, cholesterol, and fat-soluble vitamins. People affected by this disorder are not able to make certain lipoproteins, which are particles that carry fats and fat-like substances (such as cholesterol) in the blood. Specifically, people with abetalipoproteinemia are missing a group of lipoproteins called beta-lipoproteins. An inability to make beta-lipoproteins causes severely reduced absorption (malabsorption) of dietary fats and fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E, and K) from the digestive tract into the bloodstream. Sufficient levels of fats, cholesterol, and vitamins are necessary for normal growth, development, and maintenance of the body's cells and tissues, particularly nerve cells and tissues in the eye.

MalaCards: Abetalipoproteinemia, also known as familial hypobetalipoproteinemia, is related to hypobetalipoproteinemia and fatty liver disease, and has symptoms including areflexia/hyporeflexia, movement disorder and visual loss/blindness/amblyopia. An important gene associated with Abetalipoproteinemia is MTTP (microsomal triglyceride transfer protein), and among its related pathways are Fatty acid metabolism and Mitochondrial LC-Fatty Acid Beta-Oxidation. The compounds TG(18:1(9Z)/18:2(9Z,12Z)/20:4(5Z,8Z,11Z,14Z))[iso6] and TG(18:0/18:2(9Z,12Z)/20:4(5Z,8Z,11Z,14Z))[iso6] have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, liver and skeletal muscle, and related mouse phenotypes are liver/biliary system and cardiovascular system.

Disease Ontology:8 A hypolipoproteinemia that is characterized by an inablility to fully absorb dietary fats, cholesterol and fat-soluble vitamins, has physical basis in an autosomal recessive disorder of lipid metabolism caused by mutation of the microsomal triglyceride transfer protein that catalyzes the transport of lipids (triglycerides; cholesterol esters; phospholipids) and is required in the secretion of beta-lipoproteins (low density lipoproteins or ldl).

NIH Rare Diseases:43 Abetalipoproteinemia is a disease in which a person is unable to fully absorb dietary fats, cholesterol and fat-soluble vitamins. signs and symptoms appear in the first few months of life and can include failure to gain weight and grow at the expected rate (failure to thrive); diarrhea; acanthocytosis; and stool abnormalities. other features of this disorder may develop later in childhood and often impair the function of the nervous system, potentially causing poor muscle coordination, ataxia, and an eye disorder called retinitis pigmentosa. abetalipoproteinemia is usually caused by mutations in the mttp gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. treatment may include dietary modification and various dietary supplements. last updated: 3/26/2012

CDC:4 The ABLES program is a state-based surveillance program of laboratory-reported adult blood lead levels. The program objective is to build state capacity to initiate, expand, or improve adult blood lead surveillance programs which can accurately measure trends in adult blood lead levels and which can effectively intervene to prevent lead over-exposures.
