È Prevalence of the 985AwG mutation in the medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) gene in Sweden. Scand J Clin Lab Invest 1999; 59: 289±292. The prevalence of the 985AwG mutation in the medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase gene was determined in the Swedish population. A heterozygote frequency of 1 : 127 was observed. Morbidity data indicate that most of the homozygotes with this mutation are not diagnosed and probably remain asymptomatic. Key words: Fatty acid oxidation L. Hagenfeldt, CMMS, Huddinge University Hospital, S-141 86 Huddinge, Sweden Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD, EC 1.3.99.3) is one of the enzymes involved in the mitochondrial b-oxidation of fatty acids.
