Reagents, Molecular Assay, Gene Anomaly, Mutation, ACAT1
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify mutations in the acetyl-Coenzyme A acetyltransferase 1 (acetoacetyl Coenzyme A thiolase) (ACAT1) gene, located at chromosome 11q22.3-q23.1, which encodes for a mitochondrial enzyme that is specific for processing isoleucine and ketones. Mutations at this locus have been identified in patients with 3-ketothiolase deficiency (3ktd) also known as alpha-methylacetoacetic aciduria and with beta-ketothiolase deficiency.
