BACKGROUND Mitochondrial disorders result from primary defects in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) or from defects in nuclear genes which cause disease by affecting the mtDNA. POLG1 is a nuclear gene which encodes for the catalytic subunit of the mtDNA polymerase gamma, essential for mtDNA replication. Less than a decade ago, POLG1 mutations were discovered in patients with progressive external ophthalmoplegia. Since then, it has emerged that POLG1 mutations can result in a spectrum of clinical… CONTINUE READING
