MalaCards based summary: Desmosterolosis, also known as deficiency of 3beta-hydroxysterol delta24-reductase, is related to greenberg skeletal dysplasia and smith-lemli-opitz syndrome, and has symptoms including muscle spasticity, muscle spasticity and seizures. An important gene associated with Desmosterolosis is DHCR24 (24-Dehydrocholesterol Reductase). Affiliated tissues include brain and bone.

Genetics Home Reference:25 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:70 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:71 Desmosterolosis is a defect in cholesterol biosynthesis. It results in an accumulation of desmosterol. more...
