Mitochondrial dysfunction in fatty acid oxidation disorders: insights from human and animal studies.
Porto Alegre, Brazil. In Biosci Rep, 2014
We will briefly summarize the current knowledge obtained from patients and genetic mouse models with these disorders indicating that disruption of mitochondrial energy, redox and calcium homoeostasis is involved in the pathophysiology of the tissue damage in the more common FAOD, including medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD), long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (LCHAD) and very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) deficiencies.
State of the art in muscle lipid diseases.
Tokyo, Japan. In Acta Myol, 2010
This group includes beta-oxidation cycle defects and deficiencies of carnitine palmitoyltransferase II (CPTH) and very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD).
