Different Forms of LCFAOD Result in Altered Lipidomic Profiles

Different forms of long chain fatty acid oxidation disorders (LCFAODs) result in varied lipidomic profiles, according to a recent presentation at the International Network for Fatty Acid Oxidation Research and Management (INFORM) Virtual Conference.

The presenter, Dr. Sara Tucci, Head of the Laboratory for Clinical Biochemistry and Metabolism for Pediatrics at the University of Freiberg Medical Center in Germany, showed data that suggested that carnitine palmitoyltransferase II (CPTII), very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD), and long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (LCHAD) deficiency disorders all resulted in different fatty acid profiles.
