Abetalipoproteinemia (ABL; OMIM 200100) is a very rare autosomal recessive disorder of lipoprotein metabolism in which sequence variations in the microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTP) gene lead to virtually undetectable plasma concentrations of apoB-containing lipoproteins.
Oxidative stress in abetalipoproteinemia patients receiving long-term vitamin E and vitamin A supplementation.
Primary causes include abetalipoproteinemia (ABL; OMIM 200100), chylomicron retention disease (OMIM 246700), and FHBL (20).
