Alkyldihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase, peroxisomal or AGPS neo-epitope is encoded by the gene AGPS. AGPS is a member of the FAD-binding oxidoreductase/transferase type 4 family and is an enzyme involved in ether lipid biosynthesis. Diseases associated with this gene include forms of Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata.
