Red Cell Plasmalogens
- An insight into the biochemistry of inborn errors of metabolism for a clinical neurologist

Plasmalogens are the major components of the phospholipids of myelin and other membranes, including the red blood corpuscles. In peroxisomal biogenesis disorders, a deficiency of plasmalogen biosynthesis occurs, which results in decreased concentrations in myelin and other membranes, including red cell membranes. Plasmalogens are determined by extracting membrane lipids and determining lipid phosphorus after saponification to remove phosphoglycerides.
