Mitochondrial cytopathies are mutations in the inherited maternal mitochondrial genome, or the nuclear DNA-mutation. Mitochondrial respiratory chain disorders (RCD) are a group of genetically and clinically heterogeneous diseases, due to the fact that protein components of the respiratory chain are encoded by both mitochondrial and nuclear genomes and are essential in all cells. In addition, the biogenesis, structure and function of mitochondria, including DNA replication, transcription, and translation, all require nuclear encoded genes. Since mitochondria are present in every cell, every tissue, mitochondrial disorder usually affects multiple organs.
Covers recognizable syndromes and heterogeneous mitochondrial disease caused by specific genes Readers will learn biochemical, molecular, clinical, and genetic aspects of the complex dual genome mitochondrial disorders Examines different organs effected by mitochondrial disorder
