encephalomyopathic mtDNA depletion syndrome with methylmalonic aciduria

MIM.612073

Wednesday 10 March 2010

Pathology

- germline mutations in encephalomyopathic mtDNA depletion syndrome with methylmalonic aciduria (MIM.612073)

  • markedly decreased succinyl-CoA synthetase activity due to a deleterious mutation in SUCLA2, the gene encoding the beta subunit of the ADP-forming succinyl-CoA synthetase ligase,
  • Succinyl-CoA synthetase is invariably in a complex with mitochondrial nucleotide diphosphate kinase.

SUCLA2 is the gene encoding the beta subunit of the ADP-forming succinyl-CoA synthetase ligase.

- mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome (MDDS)

  • The mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome (mtDNA depletion syndrome or MDDS) is a quantitative defect of mtDNA resulting from dysfunction of one of several nuclear-encoded factors responsible for maintenance of mitochondrial deoxyribonucleoside triphosphate (dNTP) pools or replication.
