tell me everything you know about ZELLWEGER SYNDROME?

where is the chromosome location? INheritance patter and the type of mutation

Here is a site: http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/zellweger/zellweger.htm

Another, quote: The syndrome is caused by mutations (changes) in any of several different genes involved in peroxisome formation. These genes lie on at least two different chromosome locations including chromosome 2 (region 2p15) and chromosome 7 (region 7q21-q22).

I couldn't really find anything on the pattern of inheritance.

I'm sorry, I hope you are doing school work and not searching for a personal reason.  (+ info)
