ACADVL

A gene on chromosome 17p13.1 that encodes acyl-Coenzyme A dehydrogenase, a protein bound to the inner mitochondrial membrane that catalyses the first step of the mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway; it is specific to long-chain and very long-chain fatty acids.

Molecular pathology
ACADVL mutation reduces myocardial fatty acid beta-oxidation and is linked to cardiomyopathy and VLCAD—Very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase—deficiency.
