  • Function
    Active toward esters of long-chain and very long chain fatty acids such as palmitoyl-CoA, mysritoyl-CoA and stearoyl-CoA. Can accomodate substrate acyl chain lengths as long as 24 carbons, but shows little activity for substrates of less than 12 carbons.
  • Pathway
    Lipid metabolism; mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ACADVL are the cause of acyl-CoA dehydrogenase very long chain deficiency (ACADVLD) [MIM:201475]. ACADVLD is an autosomal recessive disease which leads to impaired long-chain fatty acid beta-oxidation. It is clinically heterogeneous, with three major phenotypes: a severe childhood form, with early onset, high mortality, and high incidence of cardiomyopathy; a milder childhood form, with later onset, usually with hypoketotic hypoglycemia as the main presenting feature, low mortality, and rare cardiomyopathy; and an adult form, with isolated skeletal muscle involvement, rhabdomyolysis, and myoglobinuria, usually triggered by exercise or fasting.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion inner membrane.

  • Immunocytochemistry image of ACADVL antibody [6A9AF2] (ab110285) stained human HDFn cells. The cells were paraformaldehyde fixed (4%, 20 min) and Triton X-100 permeabilized (0.1%, 15min). The cells were incubated with ab110285 at 5 µg/ml for 2h at room temperature or over night at 4°C. The secondary antibody was (red) Alexa Fluor® 594 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. 10% Goat serum was used as the blocking agent for all blocking steps. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue). Target protein locates mainly in mitochondria.
  • ab110285,at 1/250 dilution, staining ACADVL in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human cerebellum tissue. Immunoactivity is most intense in neuronal cell bodies, most notably in the large Purkinje cells.
  • ACADVL immunocaptured from 0.75mg of human liver mitochondria lysate /10ul antibody conjugated beads using ab110285.
