ACADM

(redirected from ACAD1)

ACADM

A gene on chromosome 1p31, which encodes a medium-chain-specific (C4 to C12 straight chain) acyl-Coenzyme A dehydrogenase, which catalyses the initial step of the mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway.

Molecular pathology
ACADM defects cause medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, a disease characterised by hepatic dysfunction, fasting hypoglycemia and encephalopathy, which causes death in infancy.

In line with the options made by the author of the original scale (Crowley & Merrell, 2003), and considering that the measurement errors are often the result of the perceived redundancy in the content of the items (Byrne, 2010), the correlation between the measurement errors of mini-scales Acad1 and Acad3 was allowed.
