Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, is a disorder of fatty acid oxidation that impairs the body's ability to break down medium-chain fatty acids into acetyl-CoA. The disorder is characterized by hypoglycemia and sudden death without timely intervention, Specialty: Endocrinology.

Mutations in the ACADM gene cause MCAD deficiency.This gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, which is required to break down (metabolize) a group of fats called medium-chain fatty acids.

Experience an MCAD studio class in a two-day, hands-on intensive, focusing on an introduction to hand-drawn animation, covering basic techniques and concepts. Students will start with traditional pencil and paper techniques, and then will use aspects of Adobe Photoshop and AfterEffects to bring their animations to life.
