>cd03223 ABCD_peroxisomal_ALDP Peroxisomal ATP-binding cassette transporter (Pat) is involved in the import of very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) into the peroxisome. The peroxisomal membrane forms a permeability barrier for a wide variety of metabolites required for and formed during fatty acid beta-oxidation. To communicate with the cytoplasm and mitochondria, peroxisomes need dedicated proteins to transport such hydrophilic molecules across their membranes. X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) is caused by mutations in the ALD gene, which encodes ALDP (adrenoleukodystrophy protein ), a peroxisomal integral membrane protein that is a member of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter protein family. The disease is characterized by a striking and unpredictable variation in phenotypic expression. Phenotypes include the rapidly progressive childhood cerebral form (CCALD), the milder adult form, adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN), and variants without neurologic involvement (i.e. asympt
