RCDP type 1 is caused by mutation of PEX7 encoding the peroxisome-targeting signal 2 (PTS2) receptor; (60)-62) types 2, 3, and 4 are impaired in three genes, DHAPAT, ADAPS, and FAR1, encoding peroxisomal enzymes, DHAP-ATase, alkyl-DHAP synthase, and fatty acyl-CoA reductase, respectively, involved in the synthesis of plasmalogens; (71)-73) type 5 manifesting a mutation of Pex5pL (74) that transports PTS1 proteins and Pex7p-PTS2 protein complex to peroxisomes.
