Previous GeneCards Identifiers for IVD Gene
Isovaleryl-CoA dehydrogenase (IVD) is a mitochondrial matrix enzyme that catalyzes the third step in leucine catabolism. The genetic deficiency of IVD results in an accumulation of isovaleric acid, which is toxic to the central nervous system and leads to isovaleric acidemia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2017]
GeneCards Summary for IVD Gene
IVD (Isovaleryl-CoA Dehydrogenase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IVD include Isovaleric Acidemia and Metabolic Acidosis. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Valproic acid pathway. 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 IVD Gene
Catalyzes the conversion of isovaleryl-CoA/3-methylbutanoyl-CoA to 3-methylbut-2-enoyl-CoA as an intermediate step in the leucine (Leu) catabolic pathway (PubMed:7640268). To a lesser extent, is also able to catalyze the oxidation of other saturated short-chain acyl-CoA thioesters as pentanoyl-CoA, hexenoyl-CoA and butenoyl-CoA (PubMed:7640268).
