Very long chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency: identification of a new inborn error of mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation in fibroblasts.


A patient highly suspected of long chain fatty acid oxidation defect was investigated for membrane-bound palmitoyl-CoA dehydrogenation in a membrane extract from skin fibroblasts, using 1% sodium cholate as detergent. The profoundly decreased activity observed is consistent with a deficiency of the newly identified mitochondrial 'very long chain acyl-CoA… (More)
