The parents are first degree cousins who had lost 2 previous children, the first one at 3 days of age with sudden unexplained death at home and the second at the age of 2 months with confirmed hypoglycemia and cardiomyopathy that was proven to be VLCAD deficiency based on tandem mass spectrometry (TMS) results.
PCNA mRNA expression and mRNA expression of the PPAR[alpha] target genes VLCAD, MCAD, PH, and PT were increased with TRI exposure relative to controls in mPPAR[alpha] and hPPAR[alpha] mice, with more pronounced induction of PH and PT mRNA in mPPAR[alpha] mice.
The disorders tested in newborn screening include very long-chain acyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase (VLCAD) deficiency, long-chain 3-hyroxy acyl-coenzyme A dehydrogense deficiency (LCHAD), medium-chain acyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency, and short-chain acyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase (SCALD) deficiency.
El material biologico empleado en el presente estudio ha sido fibroblastos de 6 pacientes con deficiencia de VLCAD. Esta deficiencia fue confirmada por estudios enzimaticos, moleculares, o ambos.

C14:1, another long-chain acylcarnitine, represents the metabolite most reliably indicative of very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) deficiency (75,108).
In January 2002, six more tests were added for the fatty acid oxidation disorders (MCAD, SCAD, LCAD and VLCAD) and two urea cycle disorders, arginosuccinic acidemia and citrullinemia.
A good example of this is Very Long Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase deficiency (VLCAD).
