Mitochondrial diseases and genetic defects of ATP synthase.
ATP synthase is a key enzyme of mitochondrial energy conversion. In mammals, it produces most of cellular ATP. Alteration of ATP synthase biogenesis may cause two types of isolated defects:Expand

Mitochondrial ATP synthase deficiency due to a mutation in the ATP5E gene for the F1 epsilon subunit.
F1Fo-ATP synthase is a key enzyme of mitochondrial energy provision producing most of cellular ATP. So far, mitochondrial diseases caused by isolated disorders of the ATP synthase have been shown toExpand

Sustained deficiency of mitochondrial complex I activity during long periods of survival after seizures induced in immature rats by homocysteic acid
Our previous work demonstrated the marked decrease of mitochondrial complex I activity in the cerebral cortex of immature rats during the acute phase of seizures induced by bilateralExpand

Neonatal onset of mitochondrial disorders in 129 patients: clinical and laboratory characteristics and a new approach to diagnosis
IntroductionMitochondrial disorders (MD) may manifest in neonates, but early diagnosis is difficult. In this study, clinical and laboratory data were analyzed in 129 patients with neonatal onset ofExpand

Mitochondrial encephalocardio-myopathy with early neonatal onset due to TMEM70 mutation
Objective Mitochondrial disturbances of energygenerating systems in childhood are a heterogeneous group of disorders. The aim of this multi-site survey was to characterise the natural course of aExpand

Deficiency of mitochondrial ATP synthase of nuclear genetic origin
We present clinical and laboratory data from 14 cases with an isolated deficiency of the mitochondrial ATP synthase (7-30% of control) caused by nuclear genetic defects. A quantitative decrease ofExpand

Elevated CSF-lactate is a reliable marker of mitochondrial disorders in children even after brief seizures.
BACKGROUND Increased lactate is an important biochemical marker in diagnosis of children with suspicion of mitochondrial disorders. A diagnostic dilemma may originate if analyses are performed afterExpand

Clinical picture of S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase deficiency resembles phosphomannomutase 2 deficiency.
We report on the seventh known patient with S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase (SAHH) deficiency presenting at birth with features resembling phosphomannomutase 2 (PMM2-CDG Ia) deficiency. PlasmaExpand
