Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ACADSB Gene
Short/branched chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase(ACADSB) is a member of the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family of enzymes that catalyze the dehydrogenation of acyl-CoA derivatives in the metabolism of fatty acids or branch chained amino acids. Substrate specificity is the primary characteristic used to define members of this gene family. The ACADSB gene product has the greatest activity towards the short branched chain acyl-CoA derivative, (S)-2-methylbutyryl-CoA, but also reacts significantly with other 2-methyl branched chain substrates and with short straight chain acyl-CoAs. The cDNA encodes for a mitochondrial precursor protein which is cleaved upon mitochondrial import and predicted to yield a mature peptide of approximately 43.7-KDa. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ACADSB Gene
ACADSB (Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Short/Branched Chain) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ACADSB include 2-Methylbutyryl-Coa Dehydrogenase Deficiency and Acyl-Coa Dehydrogenase Deficiency. Among its related pathways are Valine, leucine and isoleucine degradation and Fatty Acyl-CoA Biosynthesis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include flavin adenine dinucleotide binding and acyl-CoA dehydrogenase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ACADS.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ACADSB Gene
Has greatest activity toward short branched chain acyl-CoA derivative such as (s)-2-methylbutyryl-CoA, isobutyryl-CoA, and 2-methylhexanoyl-CoA as well as toward short straight chain acyl-CoAs such as butyryl-CoA and hexanoyl-CoA. Can use valproyl-CoA as substrate and may play a role in controlling the metabolic flux of valproic acid in the development of toxicity of this agent.
