Inheritance of a defective ATP7A gene results in a decrease in copper transport across cellular membranes, primarily in the gastrointestinal tract that leads to dysfunction of numerous copper-dependent enzyme systems including: lysyl oxidase--intimal cleavage; monamide oxidase--kinky hair; ascorbate oxidase--skeletal deformities; tyrosinase depigmentation of hair, skin pallor; and, cytochrome C oxidase--hypothermia.
