External Ids for ACADS Gene
This gene encodes a tetrameric mitochondrial flavoprotein, which is a member of the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family. This enzyme catalyzes the initial step of the mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway. Mutations in this gene have been associated with short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (SCAD) deficiency. Alternative splicing results in two variants which encode different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2014]
GeneCards Summary for ACADS Gene
ACADS (Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase, C-2 To C-3 Short Chain) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ACADS include infantile hypotonia and carotid artery dissection. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include flavin adenine dinucleotide binding and acyl-CoA dehydrogenase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ACAD8.
