long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (LCAD) deficiency
- long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (LCAD) deficiency
- a defect in mitochondrial beta oxidation due to a mutation in the gene (locus: 2q34-q35) encoding the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase that acts on long chain length fatty acids. It is clinically similar to MCAD deficiency, but urinary excretion is of long-chain dicarboxylic acids and skeletal muscle weakness and cardiac enlargement may also be present.
