    ..Monitoring blood acylcarnitine profiles in response to different stressors may allow systematic analysis of therapeutic interventions in VLCAD knockout mice. ..
  2. Spiekerkoetter U, Tokunaga C, Wendel U, Mayatepek E, IJlst L, Vaz F, et al. Tissue carnitine homeostasis in very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase-deficient mice. Pediatr Res. 2005;57:760-4 pubmed
    ..Our data suggest that carnitine supplementation in long-chain beta-oxidation defects may not be required, and blood carnitine concentrations do not reflect tissue carnitine homeostasis. ..

    ..Whether this is due to lack of a substrate, inhibitory effects on other gluconeogenic enzymes or impaired transcription of gluconeogenic enzymes needs to be resolved in the future. ..

    ..This is the first study demonstrating that acylcarnitines and acyl-CoA directly correlate and concomitantly increase after exercise in VLCAD-deficient muscle. ..
