Descriptor sulfatidosis
Scope note: Grupo de trastornos metabólicos hereditarios caracterizado por la acumulación intralisosómica de lípidos que contienen azufre (SULFATIDOS), incluyendo SULFOGLICOESFINGOLÍPIDOS que se encuentran normalmente en la VAINA DE MIELINA en el cerebro. Estos trastornos son debidos a defectos de las enzimas de degradación, lo que da lugar a la acumulación (o almacenamiento) del sustrato.

Scope note: A group of inherited metabolic disorders characterized by the intralysosomal accumulation of sulfur-containing lipids (SULFATIDES), including SULFOGLYCOSPHINGOLIPIDS normally found in the MYELIN SHEATH of the brain. These disorders are caused by defective degradative enzymes leading to substrate accumulation (or storage).
