Farber disease

The disease presents most commonly during the first few months after birth with a unique triad of clinical manifestations: Otherwise it is hidden from view. The full-length cDNA contains an bp open-reading frame.

OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine.

Normal intelligence in many of these patients and the postmortem findings suggest that brain involvement is limited or missing entirely. This disease is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, that is, both copies of the gene in every cell must have mutations for alteration is expressed.

The ceramide that accumulates in Farber disease is confined to the lysosomal compartment and does not appear to contribute to the multiple biomodulatory roles attributed to ceramides and derivatives in other subcellular compartments.

Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Here, gene-modified cells diffuse acid ceramidase activity, which can be taken up and used functionally by unmodified bystander cells.
