Medium chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) binds flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) as cofactor, and catalyze α,β-dehydrogenation of fatty acid acyl-CoA conjugates as the first step of β-oxidation of fatty acids in mitochondria. TP mutations affecting all enzyme activities or predominantly LCHAD produce severe, infantile or adult forms. MCAD deficiency is one of the most common inborn errors of metabolism, with an estimated prevalence of 1:17,000 in the United States and as high as 1:10,000 in parts of northern Europe.67,68 The disease is largely hepatic in origin with symptoms arising whenever the liver is called upon to oxidize fats for ketone generation. Affected individuals can present with congestive heart failure or ventricular fibrillation resulting in sudden cardiac death. While the LCAD−/− model displays embryonic loss and thus smaller litter sizes, the MCAD−/− model has normal litter sizes but neonatal “failure to thrive” with about 60% of mutant pups dying before weaning age.69 When fasted, MCAD−/− mice develop mild hypoglycemia and elevated serum free fatty acids but these changes do not reach statistical significance. The method for probing the branchedchain pathways in intact cells proved to be useful in recognizing several inherited defects as well as distinguishing between the mild and severe clinical phenotypes of ETF–QO dehydrogenase deficiency (GA II or MADD). Acyl-CoA dehydrogenases contain flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) as a cofactor. J Inherit Metab Dis. Long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (EC1.3.99.13) starts the first cycle of beta-oxidation with the transfer of electrons from CLA via FAD and ubiquinone to the electron-transfer system. (2007) back in 2007 in a study on 11 individuals with RR-MADD, where all reported cases had mutations in the ETFDH gene. Knockdown experiments in very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD)-deficient fibroblasts revealed that ACAD9 is responsible for the production of C14:1-carnitine from oleate and C12-carnitine from palmitate. Craigen, in Cardioskeletal Myopathies in Children and Young Adults, 2017. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Scheme 11. Instead, turnover occurs by sequential one-electron oxidations by ETF while the product enoyl-CoA ester is bound234 (Scheme 11). The 3-hydroxyl group is then oxidized with reduction of NAD+ to NADH to produce a β-keto group. This enzymatic complex is called mitochondrial trifunctional protein or MTP. Marc C. Patterson, Alan K. Percy, in Neuromuscular Disorders of Infancy, Childhood, and Adolescence (Second Edition), 2015, Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency Diseases, Very Long-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase (VLCAD) Deficiency, (Long-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase (LCAD) Deficiency), Medium-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase (MCAD) Deficiency, Short-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase (SCAD) Deficiency, Electron Transfer Flavoprotein (ETF) Deficiency, ETF-Coenzyme Q Oxidoreductase (ETF-QO) Deficiency, Hydroxyacyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency Diseases, Long-Chain 3-Hydroxyacyl-CoA Dehydrogenase (LCHAD) Deficiency, Short-Chain 3-Hydroxyacyl-CoA Dehydrogenase (SCHAD) Deficiency, S. Chanprasert, W.J. LCHAD deficiency is unique because patients often develop long-term peripheral neuropathy and retinopathy, with progressive loss of vision. Lethargy and hypoglycemia occur, and if not corrected, can lead to death. Inherited deficiencies of these dehydrogenases are commonly associated with muscle weakness and lipid storage. These results suggest that IHE might accelerate lipid oxidation, while at the same time it suppresses triacylglycerol biosynthesis. Hiroaki Yajima, in Beer in Health and Disease Prevention, 2009. The electrons from FADH 2 are subsequently transferred to ubiquinone in the electron transport chain. Deficiency in ETF dehydrogenase causes the human genetic disease multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency. As several RR-MADD patients present low mitochondrial levels of flavins, it has been suggested that disease states could rather be attributed to disturbances in flavin homeostasis.

Physical constants contained in KM theory were determined by a best-fit procedure between the observed and calculated fluorescence decays. Overall, the phenotypic severity among the four ACAD-deficient strains is thus LCAD > MCAD > VLCAD > SCAD. Short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (SCADH; EC 1.3.99.2), MCADH, and isovaleryl-CoA d … Lack of both cofactor responsiveness and biochemical heterogeneity in eight patients J Clin Invest . Acyl-CoA oxidases (ACOs) are very similar to ACADs. For example, the dissociation constant of oct-2-enoyl-CoA from oxidized enzyme is 200 nmol l−1, but with reduced enzyme it is 13 pmol l−1.229 Therefore, it is thermodynamically unfavorable for the reduced enzyme to release product. Short-chain specific acyl-CoA dehydrogenase is one of the acyl-CoA dehydrogenases that catalyze the first step of mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation, an aerobic process breaking down fatty acids into acetyl-CoA and allowing the production of energy from fats (By similarity). Enoyl-CoA reductase. When a pregnancy carries an affected fetus, maternal HELLP syndrome (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets) occurs in both LCHAD and MTP deficiency with an incidence of 15–20% [124]. Herrema et al.70 performed a detailed study of gluconeogenesis and carbohydrate management in MCAD−/− mice under conditions of fasting and injections of lipopolysaccharide to induce the acute phase response. Using recombinantly expressed human very long chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, we are able to demonstrate that palmitate-induced H 2 O 2 release may be ascribed to the activity of this enzyme alone, acting as an oxidase. Mechanistically similar enzymes involved in amino acid metabolism are also members of the ACAD family, including isobutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase, isovaleryl-CoA dehydrogenase, and glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase. In this article, we describe 25 patients with MADD deficiency and present the clinical and laboratory characteristics and diagnostic challenges associated with riboflavin-responsive MADD deficiency. This was already proposed by Olsen et al. Loss of function results in MCAD deficiency, a disorder that usually presents in childhood with hypoketotic hypoglycemia, vomiting and lethargy. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. Patients with decreased levels of all three enzymes activities (general MTP deficiency) are also observed. (1983) measured defective medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase in one of the patients of Colle et al. Most patients have mutations in the LCHAD domain of trifunctional protein and the Glu510Gln missense mutation accounts for nearly 90% mutant alleles in the adult form of the disease (4). Other manifestations include nonketotic hypoglycemia, liver dysfunction, lactic academia, and encephalopathy. Ligand binding by ACADs is often accompanied by the appearance of intense charge-transfer absorbance. The acyl-CoA dehydrogenases (ACDs) are mitochondrial enzymes that dehydrogenate acyl-coenzyme A esters of different chain lengths. This reaction is analogous to the succinate dehydrogenase reaction in the citric acid cycle. While these disorders demonstrate a similar range of morbidity seen in other long chain disorders, cardiac involvement with cardiomyopathy and cardiac arrhythmia are frequent findings. Notes: Total RNA was isolated from KK-Ay mice fed a diet with or without 1.2% IHE. Currently, there are five types of ACADs classified according to substrate specificity. The electrons from FADH2 are subsequently transferred to ubiquinone in the electron transport chain. Subsequently, deficiency of this 2-methyl-branched chain dehydrogenase, affecting the metabolism of both valine and isoleucine, has been proposed in the diagnosis of a few children.6 The procedure described here for probing branched-chain amino acid pathways in intact fibroblasts was developed to diagnose a child who appeared to have an isolated deficiency of isobutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase. The electrons from FADH 2 are subsequently transferred to ubiquinone in the electron transport chain. acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family (4) have been described from a variety of sources, including isovaleryl-CoA dehy-drogenase, 2-methylbutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase, glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase, and the very long chain acyl-CoA Quantitative RT-PCR analysis of the mRNAs for the acyl-CoA oxidase (ACO), medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD), and diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 2 (DGAT2) genes in the liver of KK-Ay mice fed a standard diet with or without IHE was performed. Each member of this family interac … This gene encodes a component of the electron-transfer system in mitochondria and is essential for electron transfer from a number of mitochondrial flavin -containing dehydrogenases to the main respiratory chain. Like Jamaican vomiting sickness, which results from toxicity of the unripened ackee (akee) fruit, this disorder affects all FAD-dependent acyl-CoA dehydrogenases and has been designated glutaric aciduria type II (GA II) or multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MADD).2 This autosomal inherited disorder affects not only the branched-chain amino acid pathways but also mitochondrial acyl-CoA dehydrogenases (required for fatty acid degradation) and glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase (serving the metabolism of lysine, hydroxylysine, and tryptophan). ► The results could be applied to explain the remarkable fluorescence quenching in terms of photoinduced electron transfer in medium chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase. A recent review reported that 98% of RR-MADD cases are attributed to late-onset MADD, and that the majority of cases are due to mutations in ETFDH (93%) rather than mutations in ETFA and ETFB (Grunert, 2014). ACADs catalyze the oxidation of acyl-CoA thioesters, forming the corresponding enoyl-CoA ester and reduced flavin214 (Equation (8)). Both HCM and DCM have been associated with these conditions, but the underlying pathophysiology of cardiomyopathy is not well understood. It is believed to be caused by accumulation of long-chain fatty acylcarnitines as they have been shown to cause myocardial injury and rhythm disturbances. MTP is composed of four alpha and four beta subunits encoded by the HADHA and HADHB genes, respectively. The RNA was subjected to quantitative RT-PCR to measure the mRNA levels of the indicated genes. p < 0.01 for the standard diet-fed group (control) vs. the IHE supplemented group. This peptide regulates lipid metabolism. Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase. When fasted and then exposed to cold, death rapidly ensues (within 3 h of cold exposure) indicating a cold sensitivity almost as severe as that seen in LCAD−/− mice. It also binds medium- and long-chain acyl-CoA esters and serves as an acyl-CoA transporter. Recent reports on patients with MADD biochemical profiles show that these can also be due to defects in riboflavin transport and FAD metabolism (Bosch et al., 2011; Missaglia et al., 2018; Olsen et al., 2016). In contrast to adult CPT2 and VLCAD deficiencies, affected patients also have an axonal sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy and, often, pigmentary retinopathy. Medium-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency in Gene-Targeted Mice Ravi J. Tolwani 1,2 , Doug A. Hamm 1 , Liqun Tian 1 , J. Daniel Sharer 1 , Jerry Vockley 3,4 , Piero Rinaldo 5 , Dietrich Matern 5 , The acetyl-CoA is in the matrix and available as a substrate for the citric acid cycle for further oxidation. T These findings can help to understand the molecular mechanism behind riboflavin responsiveness in MADD cases, as decreased flavin content impairs flavin-dependent FAO enzymes. The free energy related to electron affinity of Iso* (GIso0) and dielectric constant (ɛ0) were, however, quite low compared to their mean values among four other flavoproteins, which was elucidated by the low polarity around Iso. Dietary modification with low fat diet and medium chain triglycerides supplementation is the mainstay of treatment. Background The liver is an important site of fat oxidation, which participates in the metabolic regulation of food intake. Crossref Medline Google Scholar 26 Kelly DP, Whelan AJ, Ogden ML, Alpers R, Zhang Z, Bellus G Their action results in the introduction of a trans double-bond between C2 … The isotope effect observed with the doubly labeled substrate is roughly equal to the product of the isotope effects observed with the singly labeled substrates, indicating that both C–H bonds break in a single transition state.238,239 Therefore, the mechanism involves proton abstraction from the substrate α-carbon via an active site base concerted with hydride transfer from the substrate β-carbon to N5 of the flavin. A small proportion of patients exhibit an isolated LCKAT deficiency. p < 0.05 for the standard diet-fed group (control) vs. the IHE supplemented group. AMA Citation Multiple-chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency (MADD). The dynamic properties of geometrical factors as distances between isoalloxazine (Iso) and the aromatic amino acids of Trp and Tyr were studied by molecular dynamic (MD) simulation. However, reduced ACOs react with molecular oxygen rapidly to produce H2O2 and regenerate the oxidized flavin, rather than reacting with ETF. MTP is a large heteromultimeric enzyme associated with the MIM that catalyzes the three final steps of long-chain mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. Eric S. Goetzman, in Progress in Molecular Biology and Translational Science, 2011. Moreover, seven patients with myopathic forms of coenzyme Q10 deficiency who responded to riboflavin therapy were also shown to have a mutation in ETFDH (Gempel et al., 2007). Oxidation at the β-carbon of the fatty acid occurs with reduction of FAD (creates a trans double bond) at the Δ 2 position to produce Δ 2 -trans-enoyl-CoA. The crystal structure of MCAD complexed with 3-thiaoctanoyl-CoA shows the ligand stacked above the flavin in the proper orientation for charge-transfer absorbance.220 In addition, electron-poor ligands, such as enoyl-CoA, have charge-transfer absorbance with the electron-rich reduced enzyme making the reduced enzyme–product complex blue-green.221,222 Usually, acyl-CoA substrates bind quite tightly to all redox states of the enzyme.223–228 Rapid reaction studies have shown that binding is a two-step process,229–232 in which an initial enzyme–ligand complex forms, followed by its isomerization to a charge-transfer complex. The center-to-center distances (Rc) between Iso and aromatic amino acids were shortest in Tyr365 (0.99 nm) and then in Trp156 (1.00 nm), Tyr123 (1.29 nm), Tyr362 (1.42 nm). However, the MCAD−/− mice showed a tendency to direct newly synthesized glucose into glycogen rather than releasing it. ACO and MCAD are known to be regulated by PPARα and to be involved in β-oxidation in the liver (Schoonjans et al., 1996). Oxidation at the β-carbon of the fatty acid occurs with reduction of FAD (creates a trans double bond) at the Δ 2 position to produce Δ 2 -trans-enoyl-CoA. LPIN-1 is important for normal lipid metabolism since it acts both as a phosphatidate phosphatase, converting phosphatidic acid to diacylglycerol during triglyceride and phospholipid biosynthesis, and as a regulator of fatty acid oxidation and mitochondrial biogenesis through an association with PPAR activators/coactivators. Treatment of mice with IHE significantly increased the mRNA levels of the ACO and MCAD genes while significantly reducing the expression of the DGAT2 gene (Table 79.3). Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase 9 (ACAD9), an enzyme assumed to play a role in fatty acid oxidation, was recently identified as a factor involved in complex I biogenesis. Crystal structures of MCAD complexed with various ligands show that the β-carbon of the substrate lies over N5 of the flavin and the α-carbon is in contact with the carboxylate of Glu376, the active site base.220,229,240 The carbonyl forms hydrogen bonds with the backbone amide of Glu376 and the 2′-hydroxyl of the flavin ribityl chain. ► We have been trying to establish a method for analysis of electron transfer (ET) in flavoproteins, with the atomic coordinates being obtained by MD simulation, and Kakitani and Mataga theory. The electrons from FADH 2 are subsequently transferred to ubiquinone in the electron transport chain. Both isolated LCHAD and MTP deficiencies have been described in humans. ACOs are homodimers and possess an additional C-terminal domain not present in the tetrameric ACADs.218 In addition, the FAD in ACOs is more solvent exposed than in ACADs, presumably enhancing oxygen reactivity. Multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MADD) deficiency, which is a rare metabolic disorder involving electron transport flavoproteins, has a wide array of clinical phenotypes.

Results are expressed as relative expression levels normalized to the expression of the control group (mean ± SD, n = 6). Acyl-CoA dehydrogenases ( ACADs) are a class of enzymes that function to catalyze the initial step in each cycle of fatty acid β-oxidation in the mitochondria of cells. The electrons on reduced flavin are transferred to another flavoprotein, electron-transferring flavoprotein (ETF), which then transfers the reducing equivalents to membrane-bound ETF dehydrogenase, which reduces ubiquinone, a substrate of the respiratory chain.215 Most ACADs are dimers of dimers, with 45 kDa subunits each containing an FAD.210 However, VLCAD and ACAD-9 are homodimers of around 70 kDa subunits instead of tetramers. Many inherited defects involving the acyl-CoA dehydrogenases in the catabolic pathways of the branched-chain amino acids have been characterized.1 An inherited disorder due to electron-transferring flavoprotein–dehydrogenase (ETF–QO) deficiency has been characterized that mimicks the biochemical effects of hypoglycin. Replacing the natural flavin with 2′-deoxy FAD reduces activity by one to ten million-fold, demonstrating the importance of stabilizing the charge buildup on the carbonyl oxygen.6,241 This charge delocalization lowers the pKa of the α-carbon by ∼11 units in the natural enzyme, and is accompanied by an increase of the pKa of the active site glutamate to ∼8–9, promoting the necessary substrate deprotonation. MCAD is an ACAD enzyme with C8 as its optimum substrate. They contain one FAD per subunit and are members of the same superfamily as ACADs.217 The reductive half-reaction (oxidation of the acyl-CoA thioester) is very similar to that of ACADs. MCAD−/− mice did not become significantly more hypoglycemic than wild-type mice despite a 20% lower rate of glucose-6-phosphate synthesis during the acute phase response. branch of the electron transport system with multiple input sites from seven acyl-CoA dehydrogenases and two N-methyl dehy-drogenases, namely, isovaleryl-CoA dehydrogenase (IVDH) and 2-methyl branched-chain acyl-CoA Cite this chapter as: Christensen E. (1984) Glutaryl-CoA Dehydrogenase Activity Determined with Intact Electron-transport Chain: Application to Glutaric Aciduria Type II. The Iso moiety was buried inside the protein, and surrounded by rigid and hydrophobic amino acids. Multiple Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MADD), also known as glutaric aciduria type II (GA II), is a rare autosomal recessive disorder of fatty acid, amino acid‘, and choline metabolism caused by a defect in the alpha or beta subunit of the mitochondrial electron transfer flavoprotein (ETFA, ETFB) protein or the electron transfer flavoprotein dehydrogenase (ETFDH) protein. The Δ2-trans-enoyl double bond is then hydrated to create a 3-hydroxyl group. Medium-chain acyl-Coenzyme A dehydrogenase (MCAD) is involved in the initial step of mitochondrial fatty acid β-oxidation (FAO). (1983) that acyl-CoA dehydrogenase The energy gap law of ET was examined and revealed that ET in MCAD takes place in the normal region. Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Bioenergetics. Generally, patients presenting mild phenotypes are advised to avoid long periods of fasting, and are treated with high doses of riboflavin (Angelini et al., 2006). Copyright © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. These results explain the origin of these obscure acylcarnitines that are used to diagnose VLCAD deficiency in humans. The urine organic aciduria is similar with increased excretion of adipic, suberic, and sebacic acids. The mutational spectrum in very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency. β-Ketothiolase. Other mutations in HADHA or HADHB genes often result in general MTP deficiency [123,124]. Ronald G. Haller, Salvatore DiMauro, in Muscle, 2012. Acetyl-CoA is cleaved at the β-keto group and CoA is attached to the shortened acyl chain to reenter the β-oxidation cycle. Oxidation at the β-carbon of the fatty acid occurs with reduction of FAD (creates a trans double bond) at the Δ2 position to produce Δ2-trans-enoyl-CoA. Recently mutations in LPIN-1, a protein highly expressed in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue, have been implicated as a common cause of fever/fasting-induced rhabdomyolysis in childhood (8). A separate acyl-CoA dehydrogenase exists for long-, medium-, and short-chain fatty acids. Table 79.3. As in other long chain disorders of fatty acid oxidation, PPAR agonists that induce transcription of the two genes are a promising approach to therapy [125]. Catalytic cycle of acyl-CoA dehydrogenases. The diagnosis is confirmed by molecular genetic testing of the HADHA and HADHB genes. Riboflavin-responsive multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (RR-MADD) is the β-oxidation disorder for which riboflavin treatment is better established, and a great number of successful cases have been reported. Elevations of hydroxylated long-chain acylcarnitines on acylcarnitine analysis is suggestive of both LCHAD and MTP deficiencies.

Theoretical analyses of photoinduced electron transfer in medium chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase: Electron transfer in the normal region. Gerald F. CombsJr. Some of these abnormalities in glucose handling by the liver may help explain the pronounced hypoglycemia seen in MCAD patients. Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase. The enzyme is found in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes and contains a flavin and FE-S cluster. ► The results show that ET in this protein takes place in the normal region. MADD, also termed glutaric aciduria type 2 (GA-2), results from genetic defects in one of three genes: ETFA and ETFB, which encode the two subunits of ETF, and ETFDH, which encodes for ETF:QO (Henriques et al., 2010b). In addition to an N-terminus that shares sequence and structural homology to all ACADs, VLCAD and ACAD-9 contain an additional ∼180 residues at the C-terminus,211,216 which show ∼14% sequence identity to residues in the N-terminus, suggesting that the residues probably originated from a partial gene duplication. Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase 9 (ACAD9) is a recently identified member of the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family. The alpha subunit carries the LCEH and the LCHAD activities, whereas the β-subunit harbors the LCKAT activity [122]. H-bonds were formed between Iso and Tyr123, Val125, Thr126 and Thr158. Succinate Dehydrogenase : A flavoprotein containing oxidoreductase that catalyzes the dehydrogenation of SUCCINATE to fumarate. Photoinduced electron transfer (ET) from aromatic amino acids to the excited Iso (Iso*) was analysed from the reported ultrafast fluorescence dynamics of MCAD with Kakitani and Mataga (KM) theory. Mutations on any of these genes will affect fatty acid and amino acid metabolism as the two flavoproteins are responsible for receiving electrons from at least 12 mitochondrial dehydrogenases, and for shuttling them to the RC via ubiquinone. This reaction is analogous to that of malate dehydrogenase. Rhead et al. Numerous assays including spectrophotometric, fluorometric, chemical, Short and branched chain specific acyl-CoA dehydrogenase that catalyzes the removal of one hydrogen from C-2 and C-3 of the fatty acyl-CoA thioester, resulting in the formation of trans-2-enoyl-CoA (PubMed: 7698750, PubMed: 11013134, PubMed: 21430231, PubMed: 10832746 ). In fact, these enzymes are often purified as green complexes due to tightly bound CoA-persulfide that serves as a charge-transfer donor to the oxidized flavin.219 Many ligands that have a negative charge or electron-rich functionality at the α/β position will form charge-transfer bands with oxidized ACADs. medium chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) complex reveals a dual mode of protein-protein interaction, imparting both specificity and promiscuity in the interaction of ETF with a range of structurally distinct primary dehydrogenases. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Medium chain acyl dehydrogenase deficiency) Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MCAD deficiency or MCADD), is a disorder of fatty acid oxidation that impairs the body's ability to break down medium-chain fatty acids into acetyl-CoA. To address these complexities, the cell utilizes ETC assembly factors, which include the LYR protein family. Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase. Some patients experience arrhythmias and mild cardiac dysfunction but not the sporadic cardiomyopathy, myocyte degeneration, and necrosis seen in the MCAD−/− mouse colony. Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase. John W. Pelley PhD, in Elsevier's Integrated Biochemistry, 2007. In contrast, the DGAT2 gene plays a vital role in the production of triacylglycerol (Meegalla et al., 2002; Waterman and Zammit, 2002). 3-Hydroxyacyl–CoA dehydrogenase. A special group of MADD patients, known as RR-MADD, show a spectacular response to vitamin B2 supplementation. (1983), thus supporting the findings of Kolvraa et al. In rat liver, there is a single acyl-CoA dehydrogenase protein that uses both isobutyryl-CoA (valine pathway) and S-2-methylbutyryl-CoA (isoleucine pathway) as equally preferred substrates and has been designated “2-methyl-branched” chain dehydrogenase.3–5 Humans have a similar enzyme. The isomerization of the initial complex might represent the dehydration of the acyl-binding crevice, which is occupied by water molecules in the free enzyme. The electron transport chain (ETC) is an important participant in cellular energy conversion, but its biogenesis presents the cell with numerous challenges. Short-chain ACAD (SCAD), medium-chain ACAD (MCAD), long-chain ACAD (LCAD), and very long-chain ACAD (VLCAD) are most active with 4-, 8-, 14-, and 16-carbon substrates, respectively.208–210 More recently, acyl-CoA dehydrogenase 9 (ACAD-9) was discovered.211 This enzyme is most active with unsaturated long-chain acyl-CoAs.212 Substrates whose acyl chain length is too long for a particular ACAD are excluded sterically by the length of the hydrophobic tunnel the alkyl group must occupy, while short-chain substrates bind weakly to ACADs specific for longer substrates because these enzymes do not interact extensively with the CoA portion of their cognate substrates; the short acyl groups do not extend deeply enough into the hydrophobic tunnel to provide significant binding energy. The first reported case was in the early 1980s, in which a 3-year-old boy with episodic vomiting, lethargy, and hypoglycemia, significantly reduced the excreted amounts of pathologic metabolites and improved disease symptoms after riboflavin therapy at 300 mg/day (Gregersen et al., 1982). The ET rate was fastest from Trp156, and then from Tyr365, Trp47, Tyr302 and Trp165 in this order. Bárbara J. Henriques, Cláudio M. Gomes, in Molecular Nutrition, 2020. This effect of IHE on lipid metabolism may be related to its effect on reducing body weight gain. Effect of IHE on the expression of genes involved in fatty acid metabolism. Because of the overlap in substrate specificities of several enzymes using four-carbon compounds as substrates, direct enzyme assay in fibroblasts was not able to distinguish an isolated defect specific for isobutyryl-CoA.
