摘要：The major cause of lipid storagemyopathies (LSM) in China is multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MADD) caused by ETFDH mutations. We here present an analysis of the spectrum of ETFDH mutations in the largest cohort of patients with MADD (90 unrelated patients). We identified 61 ETFDH mutations, including 31 novel mutations, which were widely distributed within the coding sequence. Three frequent mutations were identified: c.250G>A (most common in South China), c.770A>G and c.1227A>C (most common in both South and North China). Regional differences of allele frequency and further haplotype analysis suggest the possibility of founder effects of c.250G>A and c.770A>G. These findings promise to provide the basis for implementing a rapid and economical strategy for diagnosing MADD.
