Diagnosis and Clinical Management of Long-chain Fatty-acid Oxidation Disorders: A Review
touchREVIEWS in Endocrinology. 2021;17(2):Online ahead of journal publication
Long-chain fatty-acid oxidation disorders (LC-FAODs) are pan-ethnic, autosomal recessive, inherited metabolic conditions causing disruption in the processing or transportation of fats into the mitochondria to perform beta oxidation.1 In normal metabolism, long-chain fatty acids are bound to carnitine within the cytosol of cells, and transported across the mitochondrial membranes. Within the mitochondria, they are then cleaved […]
