Metabolite Identification
Common NameTiglylcarnitine
DescriptionTiglylcarnitine is detected in the urinary organic acid and blood spot acylcarnitine profiles in patients with mitochondrial acetoacetyl-CoA thiolase (T2) deficiency, an inborn error of metabolism affecting isoleucine and ketone bodies in the catabolic process (PMID: 14518824 ). Tiglylcarnitine is found to be associated with celiac disease, which is also an inborn error of metabolism.
