Complex I (CI) is the largest of the five multi-subunit complexes constituting the human oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) system. Seven of its catalytic core subunits are encoded by mitochondrial DNA (ND (NADH dehydrogenase)1-6, ND4L (NADH dehydrogenase subunit 4L)), with mutations in all seven having been reported in association with isolated CI(More)
Pre-term delivery is the leading cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity. The aim of this study is to determine the diagnostic accuracy of the fetal fibronectin (FF) test in predicting pre-term birth, the test interpretation and subsequent action taken in normal clinical practice in a busy tertiary centre setting. A total of 133 symptomatic women were(More)
Mutations of mtDNA are an important cause of human disease, but few animal models exist. Because mammalian mitochondria cannot be transfected, the development of mice with pathogenic mtDNA mutations has been challenging, and the main strategy has therefore been to introduce mutations found in cell lines into mouse embryos. Here, we describe a(More)
