Literature associating ACAD9 and fatal infantile cardioencephalomyopathy due to cytochrome c oxidase deficiency
Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family member 9, mitochondrial; Required for mitochondrial complex I assembly. Has a dehydrogenase activity on palmitoyl-CoA (C16:0) and stearoyl-CoA (C18:0). It is three times more active on palmitoyl-CoA than on stearoyl-CoA. However, it does not play a primary role in long-chain fatty acid oxidation in vivo. Has little activity on octanoyl-CoA (C8:0), butyryl-CoA (C4:0) or isovaleryl-CoA (5:0); Belongs to the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family.
Synonyms: ACAD9, ACAD9p, hACAD9, D6R9Z3, D6RCD8 ...
