MalaCards based summary: Desmosterolosis, also known as desmos, is related to osteoblastoma and aneurysmal bone cysts, and has symptoms including cleft palate, microcephaly and micrognathia. An important gene associated with Desmosterolosis is DHCR24 (24-Dehydrocholesterol Reductase). Affiliated tissues include brain, bone and skin.
Genetics Home Reference:23 Desmosterolosis is a condition that is characterized by neurological problems, such as brain abnormalities and developmental delay, and can also include other signs and symptoms.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 Desmosterolosis: Rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by multiple congenital anomalies and elevated levels of the cholesterol precursor desmosterol in plasma, tissue, and cultured cells.
Wikipedia:68 Desmosterolosis is a defect in cholesterol biosynthesis. It results in an accumulation of desmosterol. more...
