IntroductionDisorders affecting the oxidation of long-chain fatty acids arecomplex, potentially life-threatening, metabolic conditions. A numberof genetically distinct conditions exist, depending on the gene andprotein affected, but there are some common clinical and biochemicalfeatures.Newborn screening, which allows early intervention to preventlong-term morbidity, is not universally available. Even with screening,it is important that health professionals recognize the symptoms thatmay manifest at different stages of life.This concise guide to these rare conditions will be of value to allhealth professionals who may encounter or care for an individual witha long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorder. As well as explaining theunderlying defects, inheritance and how the conditions manifest, thebook describes the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of thedisorders. The final chapter gives some guidance on genetic counselingand supporting patients.Each chapter is supported by key learning points, and we encourageyou to take the free online FastTest that accompanies this resource atfastfacts.com to assess your understanding of these conditions.We hope that this first edition of Fast Facts: Long-Chain Fatty AcidOxidation Disorders will be a useful resource for anyone who has aninterest in learning more about these genetic disorders of lipidmetabolism.7 S.

1Fatty acid metabolismThe term fatty acid oxidation refers to the breakdown of fatty acids,which are essential for the production of cellular energy. Fatty acidsare a major fuel supplying energy during fasting and aerobic exercise.They serve most cells, with the exception of brain and red blood cells,and are the preferred respiratory fuel used by the heart and skeletalmuscle, particularly during exercise. Oxidation of fatty acids duringfasting provides up to 80% of total energy requirements.Fatty acidsFatty acids are carboxylic acids. In carboxylic acids, a carboxyl group(COOH) is attached to a second chemical group, referred to as R. In afatty acid, R is a hydrocarbon chain (Figure 1.1).Fatty acids have some general characteristics. The carbon chain length can vary between 4 and 28 units. The carbon chain can be saturated or unsaturated, branched orunbranched; most fatty acids have unbranched chains with an evennumber of carbon atoms. They are hydrophobic and are transported in the blood bound toalbumin. They are characterized by their chain length:– short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), with fewer than six carbons inthe chain– medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), with six to 12 carbons(a)R(b)Long hydrocarbon chainCarboxylgroupOH H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H HCH C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C COHH H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H HOOHFigure 1.1 (a) The general structure of a carboxylic acid.

Fast Facts: Long-Chain Fatty Acid Oxidation Disorders– long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs), with 13–21 carbons– very-long-chain fatty acids (VLFAs), with 22 or more carbons.TriglyceridesFatty acids are consumed in the form of dietary triglycerides(sometimes called triacylglycerols), and adipocytes store triglyceridesin large lipid droplets. Triglycerides form via a series of esterificationreactions that link the carboxyl groups of three fatty acids to a glycerolbackbone (Figure HHHHFigure 1.2 A triglyceride has three fatty acids joined to a glycerol. The fattyacid shown with a double bond in its chain is an example of an unsaturatedfatty acid.10 S. Karger Publishers Ltd 2021

Fatty acid metabolismAbsorption, transport and uptake of dietary fatAbsorption of fat occurs in three stages: emulsification, lipolysis andtransportation. As fats are not naturally water soluble, they undergoseveral transformations before they can be utilized and transportedaround the body.Emulsification i s the formation of a homogeneous solution of twosubstances that are naturally immiscible (such as oil and water). Lipid(fat) globules containing triglycerides are emulsified in the intestine, alargely water-based environment. Bile salts, which are made in the liver,have an important role. They are amphipathic molecules, having bothhydrophilic and hydrophobic portions. The hydrophilic portion is watersoluble and the hydrophobic portion is fat soluble. The amphipathicnature of bile salts means they can emulsify the larger lipid globules toform smaller fat globules that can then undergo lipolysis (Figure 1.3).Lipolysis is the process of breaking down the small fat globulescontaining triglycerides into glycerol and fatty acids. Mediated in theintestine mostly by pancreatic lipase, lipolysis involves a number ofhydrolysis reactions. The result is a mixture of free fatty acids,monoglycerides and diglycerides, which then aggregate with bile saltsand other amphipathic molecules to form mixed micelles. Micelleshave a fatty core and a water-soluble outer lining and are easilyabsorbed by the intestinal enterocytes.Transportation. Before fats can be absorbed into the bloodstream, theenterocytes reassemble free fatty acids and glycerol into triglycerides.These, together with cholesteryl ester, phospholipids andapolipoproteins, assemble to form chylomicrons, which then enter thebloodstream for transportation to tissues. The destiny of chylomicronsdepends on the body’s needs. They can be stored as fat in adiposetissue or undergo β-oxidation for energy. They are heterogeneous insize, composition and shape.11 S.

Oncereleased, the free fatty acids are transported, bound to albumin, in theblood and taken up by metabolizing cells.12 S. Karger Publishers Ltd 2021

Fatty acid metabolismGlycerolIn the bloodEpinephrineFree fattyacidsACGsATPcAMPPPKAIn the adipocyteHSLTriglyceridesFigure 1.4 The interaction of epinephrine (adrenaline) with its receptor inthe adipocyte cell membrane activates adenylyl cyclase (AC) via couplingto the trimeric G-protein, Gs. As a consequence, cyclic AMP (cAMP) isproduced from ATP and activates AMP-dependent protein kinase A (PKA).PKA phosphorylates HSL, and the phosphorylated enzyme moves to the lipiddroplet where, together with other lipases, it catalyzes the conversion oftriglycerides to free fatty acids and glycerol.Fatty acid breakdownFatty acid breakdown is an important reaction for energy production in ametabolizing cell. It involves several steps, controlled by hormones andenzymes (Figures 1.5 and 1.6). Deficiency of an enzyme involved in oneof these steps results in a specific fatty acid oxidation disorder (FAOD).13 S. Karger Publishers Ltd 2021

Aslong-chain acyl-CoA molecules do not readily cross the inner mitochondrialmembrane, the activated LCFAs are carried across by carnitine. Carnitineis accumulated inside cells by the high-affinity organic cation/carnitinetransporter 2 (OCTN2) (shown as here as CU). Carnitine palmitoyltransferase(CPT) 1 catalyzes the formation of a high-energy bond between carnitineand LCFAs, and the resulting acylcarnitines are translocated across the innermitochondrial membrane by carnitine–acylcarnitine translocase (CACT,shown here as CT). Inside the mitochondrion, CPT2, located in the innermitochondrial membrane, removes carnitine from acylcarnitines andregenerates acyl-CoAs. The carnitine then returns to the cytoplasm andthe LCFA undergoes rounds of β-oxidation within the mitochondrion. SeeFigure 1.6 for explanation of numbers 1–4. CoA, coenzyme A.14 S.

Fast Facts: Long-Chain Fatty Acid Oxidation DisordersStep 1: activation of fatty acids. Before LCFAs can enter themitochondria of a metabolizing cell to be broken down, each one hasto be activated by the enzyme long-chain acyl-coenzyme A (CoA)synthetase to form an acyl-CoA.Step 2: transportation into the mitochondria. T he activatedlong-chain acyl-CoA is transported into the inner mitochondria viathe carnitine shuttle. This requires three enzymes: carnitine–acylcarnitine translocase (CACT) carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1 (CPT1), in the outer mitochondrialmembrane carnitine palmitoyltransferase 2 (CPT2), in the inner mitochondrialmembrane.Organic cation/carnitine transporter 2 (OCTN2) is responsible forcarnitine uptake across the plasma membrane. This reaction isparticularly active in the heart, skeletal muscle and kidney. Deficiencyin this transporter system leads to primary carnitine deficiency.Fatty acids with hydrocarbon chains containing fewer than12 carbons – medium- and short-chain fatty acids – can enter themitochondria directly without the carnitine transporter system.Step 3: β-oxidation is a catabolic process mostly facilitated by themitochondrial trifunctional protein (TFP, also sometimes abbreviatedto MTP). This is a complex enzyme system associated with the innermitochondrial membrane. The TFP complex comprises twoα subunits and two β subunits, encoded by HADHA and HADHB,respectively.The α subunits function as two enzymes: long-chain-enoyl-CoAhydratase (LCEH) and long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase(LCHAD).The β subunits function as long-chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase (LCKAT).Within the TFP complex, long straight-chain fatty acids areoxidized via a spiral pathway, with each turn in the pathway involvingfour enzyme reactions – dehydrogenation, hydration, oxidation andthiolysis – each catalyzed by a specific enzyme.Step 4: the electron transport chain, also known as the respiratorychain, is embedded in the inner mitochondrial membrane.

Each turn of the β-oxidation pathway involves removingtwo carbon atoms from the fatty acid chain, forming acetyl-CoA,NADH and FADH2. Acetyl-CoA is used in the Krebs cycle or convertedin the liver to produce ketone bodies via 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl(HMG)-CoA synthase and lyase, while NADH and FADH2 are passed tothe electron transport chain. Both these pathways produce energy.At the end of the oxidation process, acyl-CoA chains with an evennumber of carbon atoms are broken down to two acetyl-CoA units.Acyl-CoA chains with an odd number of carbons yield a five-carbonunit, which is broken down to a three-carbon propionyl-CoA and atwo-carbon acetyl-CoA. The propionyl-CoA is then converted tosuccinyl-CoA, which enters the Krebs cycle to produce energy.Disorders of fatty acid oxidationDisruption at any point in the complex pathway described above leadsto energy failure and characteristic clinical features. The biochemicalhallmarks of these disorders are the accumulation of potentially toxicacylcarnitines, fatty acids and dicarboxylic acids in the urine and blood.Key points – fatty acid metabolism Fatty acids are a major fuel supplying energy during fasting andaerobic exercise. Oxidation of fatty acids during fasting provides up to 80% of thebody’s total energy requirements. Fatty acids with a chain length of fewer than 12 carbons can entermitochondria without the carnitine transporter carrier. Disruption at any point in the complex pathway of β-oxidation leadsto energy failure and characteristic clinical features.17 S. Karger Publishers Ltd 2021

2Epidemiology and geneticsFAODs are categorized as inborn errors of metabolism. They are agroup of autosomal recessive inherited conditions present from birth.In countries offering newborn screening, FAODs are identified in theneonatal period. Where screening is not available, they may present atany time, often being precipitated during times of stress arising fromillness, surgery, fasting or exercise.There are a number of FAODs, and they are named depending onthe specific defect or enzyme deficiency: for example, a short-,medium- or long-chain FAOD, or a transporter deficiency if theaffected protein is involved in transporting fatty acids from one partof the cell to another (for example, carnitine transporter deficiency)(Table 2.1).FAODs are primarily treated by dietary changes, which are disorderspecific.Incidence and prevalenceAs a group, FAODs are among the most prevalent monogenicconditions worldwide; the combined incidence is estimated as1:9300.1 The prevalences of individual FAODs differ significantly(Table 2.2), and incidence can be difficult to estimate.Very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) deficiency is themost common disorder of LCFA oxidation and its prevalence at birthhas been estimated as 1:30 000 to 1:100 000.2LCHAD deficiency/TFP deficiency is estimated to have a worldwideprevalence at birth of 1:250 000. It is known to be more common insome countries, such as Poland (1:120 000).3FAODs have a particularly high incidence in populations ofEuropean origin, though certain FAODs have a higher frequency insome specific ethnic populations – CPT1 deficiency, for example, has ahigh frequency in the Inuit people of northern Canada.418 S.

Epidemiology and geneticsImpact of newborn screening programs. In countries with newbornscreening programs, screening has led to the detection of many moreaffected infants than would have been predicted based on previousestimates of incidence.2 Most individuals identified in this way areasymptomatic at the time of diagnosis.GeneticsInherited defects in 17 proteins directly affecting either carnitinedependent transport or the process of β-oxidation have so far beenidentified.5–8The phenotypes of FAODs are diverse, and they may be alteredby genetic and environmental factors. Patients with medium-chainacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency of the same genotypemay die or remain asymptomatic, depending on their exposure tofasting stress. In contrast, the most common mutation associatedwith VLCAD deficiency in individuals of European descent,c.848T C (p.Val283Ala), has been found only in mildly affectedor asymptomatic patients. TFP deficiency, a clinically heterogeneousdisorder with phenotypes of different severity, has been associatedwith a lethal mutation.9The lack of a clear association between genotype and clinicalsymptoms makes clinical management particularly difficult. It isimportant to ensure patients have the optimal treatment toprevent possible clinical and life-threatening complications.Molecular heterogeneity has been described in all these fattyacid disorders, but some prevalent mutations have beenidentified (see Table 2.2).Several mutations (missense) that affect CPT2 cause the myopathicform of CPT2 deficiency. In individuals of European descent, the mostfrequent (affecting 60%) results in the replacement of serine withleucine at position 113 (c.338C T).Isolated LCHAD deficiency is associated with a homozygousHADHA c.1528G C mutation in most individuals of Europeandescent.TFP/MTP deficiency due to complete or partial deficiency of allthree enzymes (LCEH, LCHAD, LCKAT; page 16) is typically associatedwith a HADHA c.1528G C (p.Glu510Gln) mutation affecting oneallele and an allele carrying a different mutation at the same gene21 S.

This polymorphism is particularlyprevalent among the Canadian and Greenland Inuit and some AlaskaNative populations.10Key points – epidemiology and genetics Some FAODs have a wide range of clinical presentations, withphenotypic diversity reflecting interactions between genetic andenvironmental factors. The lack of clear association between genotype and clinicalsymptoms makes clinical management complex. The incidence of individual FAODs is difficult to estimate. Newbornscreening programs have led to an increase in prevalence of theconditions in some countries.22 S. Karger Publishers Ltd 2021

3Clinical presentationGeneral symptomsMany of the most common clinical manifestations of long-chain(LC)-FAODs are shared by all of the individual disorders in the group(Figure 3.1). In addition, there are two important clinical findings thatare typically observed only in LCHAD and TFP deficiency, namelyperipheral neuropathy and retinopathy.All of the LC-FAODs exhibit a spectrum of clinical severity, and ageof onset can be any time from the immediate neonatal period throughadult life. In addition, the phenotype in an individual patient oftenchanges as a function of age. Symptoms such as hypoglycemia andhepatic dysfunction are most common in infants and young childrenwhile, in adolescents and adults, the phenotype is often dominated byskeletal myopathy with recurrent rhabdomyolysis and chronic exerciseintolerance. Cardiomyopathy, either hypertrophic or dilated, canoccur at any age but is most severe in infants and children and mayresolve as patients get older. Pericardial effusions may be observed.Severely affected infants c an present in the immediate neonatalperiod with a severe metabolic crisis, characterized by hypoglycemia,hyperammonemia, hepatic dysfunction, muscle weakness, respiratorydistress and seizures with encephalopathy. The conditions most likelyto present in this severe fashion are CACT deficiency and the severeform of CPT2 deficiency.The mortality rate i
