1988) A possible role for plasmalogens in protecting animal cells against photosensitized killing.
1986) Isolation of animal cell mutants deficient in plasmalogen biosynthesis and peroxisome assembly.
RCDP type 2 and 3 are single enzyme deficiencies in the plasmalogen biosynthesis pathway.
Biochemical investigations like RBC plasmalogen levels and phytanic acid levels could not be done because of financial constraints.
2] Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata is a disorder caused by abnormal peroxisomal function which can be mediated both through disorders of biosynthesis, for example, peroxisomal assembly (RDCP1) and by single enzyme defects affecting plasmalogen synthesis (RCDP2, RCDP3).
