Mutated PET117 causes complex IV deficiency and is associated with neurodevelopmental regression and medulla oblongata lesions
TLDR
Lentiviral complementation of patient fibroblasts with wild-type PET117 restored the complex IV deficiency, proving that the gene defect is responsible for the complexIV deficiency in the patients, and indicating a pivotal role of this protein in the proper functioning of complex IV.
The Lebanese Allele in the PET100 Gene: Report on Two New Families with Cytochrome c Oxidase Deficiency.
TLDR
A missense mutation in exon 1 of the PET100 gene (c.3G > C; [p.Met1?]) was identified in both families, highlighting the importance of this variant in the Lebanese population.
A truncating PET100 variant causing fatal infantile lactic acidosis and isolated cytochrome c oxidase deficiency
TLDR
Exome sequencing revealed a homozygous truncating variant in the PET100 gene that results in a complete loss of enzyme activity and assembly of the holocomplex, confirming PET100 mutation as an important cause of isolated complex IV deficiency outside of the Lebanese population and extending the phenotypic spectrum associated with abnormalities within this gene.
A patient with homozygous nonsense variants in two Leigh syndrome disease genes: Distinguishing a dual diagnosis from a hypomorphic protein‐truncating variant
TLDR
W Whole exome sequencing of a patient with Leigh‐like syndrome identified homozygous protein‐truncating variants in two genes associated with Leigh syndrome; a reported pathogenic variant in PDHX and an uncharacterized variant in complex I assembly factor TIMMDC1.
Leigh syndrome: One disorder, more than 75 monogenic causes
TLDR
The emergence of genotype–phenotype correlations, insights gleaned into the molecular basis of disease, and available therapeutic options are discussed.
Leigh Syndrome: A Tale of Two Genomes
TLDR
While the prognosis is poor with no current substantial treatment options, multiple studies are underway to understand the etiology, pathogenesis, and pathophysiology of Leigh syndrome and there is hope for novel treatment options in the future.
Catalogue for Transmission Genetics in Arabs (CTGA) Database: Analysing Lebanese Data on Genetic Disorders
TLDR
A review of genetic data from the CTGA database highlights the need for screening programs, and is, to the best of the authors' knowledge, the most comprehensive report on the status of genetic disorders in Lebanon to date.
The Clp1 R140H mutation alters tRNA metabolism and mRNA 3′ processing in mouse models of pontocerebellar hypoplasia
TLDR
Findings are consistent with the hypothesis that select genes are particularly dependent upon CLP1 for proper pre-mRNA cleavage, suggesting that impaired mRNA 3′ processing may contribute to pathogenesis in PCH10.
Mitochondrial DNA-Associated Leigh Syndrome and NARP
TLDR
The diagnosis of mtDNA-associated Leigh syndrome is established in a proband with suggestive clinical features and identification of a heteroplasmic pathogenic variant in one of the three mitochondrial genes known to be involved in NARP.

Functional and genetic studies demonstrate that mutation in the COX15 gene can cause Leigh syndrome
TLDR
Leigh syndrome is a subacute necrotising encephalomyelopathy characterised by delayed onset of symptoms, hypotonia, feeding difficulties, failure to thrive, motor regression, and brain stem signs, which can result from a number of different defects in mitochondrial energy metabolism.
LRPPRC mutations cause a phenotypically distinct form of Leigh syndrome with cytochrome c oxidase deficiency
TLDR
SLSJ-COX is clinically distinct, with acute fatal acidotic crises on a backdrop of chronic moderate developmental delay and hyperlactataemia, leading to earlier and higher mortality compared to a group of SURF1-deficient Leigh syndrome patients assembled from the literature.
FASTKD2 nonsense mutation in an infantile mitochondrial encephalomyopathy associated with cytochrome c oxidase deficiency.
SURF1, encoding a factor involved in the biogenesis of cytochrome c oxidase, is mutated in Leigh syndrome
TLDR
Analysis of a candidate gene (SURF1) of unknown function revealed several mutations that suggest a role for SURF1 in the biogenesis of the COX complex and define a new class of gene defects causing human neurodegenerative disease.
Mutations of SURF-1 in Leigh disease associated with cytochrome c oxidase deficiency.
TLDR
Sequence analysis of SURF-1 revealed mutations in numerous DNA samples from LD(COX-) patients, indicating that this gene is responsible for the major complementation group in this important mitochondrial disorder.
Novel mutations in COX15 in a long surviving Leigh syndrome patient with cytochrome c oxidase deficiency
TLDR
The clinical and biochemical phenotypes in COX15 defects are more heterogeneous than in other conditions associated with COX deficiency, such as mutations in SURF1.
'North Sea' progressive myoclonus epilepsy: phenotype of subjects with GOSR2 mutation.
TLDR
Analysis of the clinical and electrophysiological phenotype in 12 patients with GOSR2 mutations found 'North Sea' progressive myoclonus epilepsy has a homogeneous clinical presentation and relentless disease course allowing ready identification from the other progressive myOClonus epilepsies.
