Gene Information

human ... ACADVL(37)

General description

The gene ACADVL (acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, very long chain) is mapped to human chromosome 17p13.1. It belongs to family of acyl-CoA dehydrogenases (ACADs). The protein exists as a homodimer and associates with the mitochondrial membrane. ACADVL is commonly referred as VLCA (very long-chain specific acyl-CoA dehydrogenase).

All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project ( as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

ACADVL (acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, very long chain) is involved in the initial step of mitochondrial fatty acid β-oxidation. Mutation or absence of ACADVL causes disturbance in mitochondrial β-oxidation, characterized by hepatocellular dysfunction, lipid storage in tissues and cardiac failure. ACADVL deficiency is associated with infantile cardiomyopathy.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.

Very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) deficiency is an enzymatic defect of the fatty acid (FA) beta oxidation pathway. In catabolic states, such as labor and early postpartum period, patients are potentially prone to metabolic decompensation and subsequent rhabdomyolysis with increased...

Genetic defects are being increasingly recognized in the etiology of primary cardiomyopathy (CM). Very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) catalyzes the first step in the beta-oxidation spiral of fatty acid metabolism, the crucial pathway for cardiac energy production. We studied 37 patients...

Very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) is a member of the family of acyl-CoA dehydrogenases (ACADs). Unlike the other ACADs, which are soluble homotetramers, VLCAD is a homodimer associated with the mitochondrial membrane. VLCAD also possesses an additional 180 residues in the...
