Medium Chain Acyl CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency (MCADD) can be easily managed once diagnosed but often the first sign is when the sufferer is taken seriously ill.
Normal functioning of the CPT system is required to ensure long chain fatty acyl CoA is transported to the mitochondrial matrix where it is needed for [beta]-oxidation.
The major diagnoses were fatty acid oxidation defects, particularly medium-chain acyl CoA dehydrogenase deficiency.
Well-known mitochondrial diseases of children are Leigh's syndrome, cardiomyopathty, and medium-chain acyl CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency Typical mitochondrial diseases of young adults include Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy and Kearns-Sayre syndrome.
Luca's parents knew he was at high risk of developing the rare MCAD (Medium-chain acyl CoA dehydrogenase), because another family member had died of the condition.
Whatever the precise mechanism by which PPs induce rodent liver cancer, rodent liver peroxisome proliferation, induction of the peroxisomal gene acyl CoA oxidase (ACO) (23), hypertrophy (24), and carcinogenicity (25) are all mediated through activation of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR[alpha]).
21)--the carnitine palmitoyl transferase (CPT), which is located at the inner side of the outer mitochondrial membrane, transesterifies the long-chain fatty acid and transports the acyl CoA across the inner mitochondrial membrane, where CPT II is located, to break the acyl bond releasing the fatty acid, and recycling CoASH (2, 6-8).
