Summaries for HADH Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HADH Gene

  • This gene is a member of the 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase gene family. The encoded protein functions in the mitochondrial matrix to catalyze the oxidation of straight-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoAs as part of the beta-oxidation pathway. Its enzymatic activity is highest with medium-chain-length fatty acids. Mutations in this gene cause one form of familial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. The human genome contains a related pseudogene of this gene on chromosome 15. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for HADH Gene

HADH (Hydroxyacyl-CoA Dehydrogenase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HADH include 3-Hydroxyacyl-Coa Dehydrogenase Deficiency and Hyperinsulinemic Hypoglycemia, Familial, 4. Among its related pathways are Regulation of lipid metabolism by Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha) and Tryptophan metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and NAD binding. An important paralog of this gene is EHHADH.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HADH Gene

  • Plays an essential role in the mitochondrial beta-oxidation of short chain fatty acids. Exerts it highest activity toward 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA.

  • 3-alpha-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (HADH deficiency) [MIM:231530]: A metabolic disorder with various clinical presentations including hypoglycemia, hepatoencephalopathy, myopathy or cardiomyopathy, and in some cases sudden death. {ECO:0000269 Ref.13}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Familial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia 4 (HHF4) [MIM:609975]: Most common cause of persistent hypoglycemia in infancy. Unless early and aggressive intervention is undertaken, brain damage from recurrent episodes of hypoglycemia may occur. HHF4 should be easily recognizable by analysis of acylcarnitine species and that this disorder responds well to treatment with diazoxide. It provides the first experiment of nature that links impaired fatty acid oxidation to hyperinsulinism and that provides support for the concept that a lipid signaling pathway is implicated in the control of insulin secretion. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11489939}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
