Summaries for Zellweger Syndrome

NINDS : 53 Zellweger syndrome is one of a group of four related diseases called peroxisome biogenesis disorders (PBD). The diseases are caused by defects in any one of 13 genes, termed PEX genes, required for the normal formation and function of peroxisomes. The PBDs are divided into two groups: Zellweger spectrum disorders and Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctua spectrum. The Zellweger spectrum is comprised of three disorders that have considerable overlap of features. These include Zellweger syndrome (ZS, the most severe form), neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy (NALD), and Infantile Refsum disease (IRD, the least severe form). Peroxisomes are cell structures that break down toxic substances and synthesize lipids (fatty acids. oils, and waxes) that are necessary for cell function. Peroxisomes are required for normal brain development and function and the formation of myelin, the whitish substance that coats nerve fibers. They are also required for normal eye, liver, kidney, and bone functions. Zellweger spectrum disorders result from dysfunctional lipid metabolism, including the over-accumulation of very long-chain fatty acids and phytanic acid, and defects of bile acids and plasmalogens--specialized lipids found in cell membranes and myelin sheaths of nerve fibers. Symptoms of these disorders include an enlarged liver; characteristic facial features such as a high forehead, underdeveloped eyebrow ridges, and wide-set eyes; and neurological abnormalities such as cognitive impairment and seizures. Infants will Zellweger syndrome also lack muscle tone, sometimes to the point of being unable to move, and may not be able to suck or swallow. Some babies will be born with glaucoma, retinal degeneration, and impaired hearing. Jaundice and gastrointestinal bleeding also may occur.

MalaCards based summary : Zellweger Syndrome, also known as cerebrohepatorenal syndrome, is related to zellweger spectrum disorder and peroxisome biogenesis disorder 1a, and has symptoms including seizures An important gene associated with Zellweger Syndrome is PEX2 (Peroxisomal Biogenesis Factor 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Peroxisome and Peroxisomal lipid metabolism. The drugs Betaine and Gastrointestinal Agents have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, eye and kidney, and related phenotypes are hepatomegaly and skeletal dysplasia

Disease Ontology : 12 A peroxisomal biogenesis disorder that is characterized by the reduction or absence of functional peroxisomes in the cells of an individual that has material basis in autosomal recessive inheritance of a mutation in the peroxisome biogenesis factor (PEX) genes.

NIH Rare Diseases : 52 Zellweger syndrome is the most severe form of a spectrum of conditions called Zellweger spectrum . The signs and symptoms of Zellweger syndrome typically appear during the newborn period and may include poor muscle tone (hypotonia ), poor feeding, seizures , hearing loss , vision loss, distinctive facial features, and skeletal abnormalities. Affected children also develop life-threatening problems in other organs and tissues , such as the liver, heart, and kidneys. Children with Zellweger syndrome usually do not survive beyond the first year of life. Zellweger syndrome is caused by mutations in any one of at least 12 genes ; mutations in the PEX1 gene are the most common cause. It is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. There is no cure for Zellweger syndrome; treatment is generally symptomatic and supportive.

KEGG : 36 Zellweger syndrome (ZS) is the most severe form seen in the peroxisome biogenesis disorder, characterized by neurological dysfunction, craniofacial abnormalities, eye abnormalities, hepatomegaly, and chondrodysplasia punctata. This disease is caused by mutation of peroxisomal biogenesis factor (PEX) genes. Due to the deficiency of functional peroxisomes, several metabolite abnormalities are usually found in ZS patients. Typically, patients accumulate C27-bile acid intermediates.
