SUCLA2 encodes the ATP-forming β subunit (A-SUCL-β) of succinyl-CoA ligase, an enzyme of the citric acid cycle. Mutations in SUCLA2 lead to a mitochondrial disorder manifesting as encephalomyopathy with dystonia, deafness and lesions in the basal ganglia. Despite the distinct brain pathology associated with SUCLA2 mutations, the precise localization of(More)
The probability of mitochondrial permeability transition (mPT) pore opening is inversely related to the magnitude of the proton electrochemical gradient. The module conferring sensitivity of the pore to this gradient has not been identified. We investigated mPT's voltage-sensing properties elicited by calcimycin or H2O2 in human fibroblasts exhibiting(More)
We have recently shown that the ATP-forming SUCLA2 subunit of succinyl-CoA ligase, an enzyme of the citric acid cycle, is exclusively expressed in neurons of the human cerebral cortex; GFAP- and S100-positive astroglial cells did not exhibit immunohistoreactivity or in situ hybridization reactivity for either SUCLA2 or the GTP-forming SUCLG2. However,(More)
