Disease relevance of ND1


High impact information on ND1

  • The identity of the Mr 29,000 subunit with the ND-1 gene product was further confirmed by immunoblotting and immunoprecipitation experiments, using the hydrophobic fraction of [14C]DCCD-labeled Complex I and antiserum to a C-terminal undecapeptide synthesized on the basis of the human mitochondrial ND-1 nucleotide sequence [2].
  • Mutagenesis of three conserved Glu residues in a bacterial homologue of the ND1 subunit of complex I affects ubiquinone reduction kinetics but not inhibition by dicyclohexylcarbodiimide [3].
  • The NQO8 subunit of P. denitrificans complex I is a homologue of ND1, and within it three conserved Glu residues that could bind DCCD, E158, E212, and E247, were changed to either Asp or Gln and in the case of E212 also to Val [3].
  • In addition, phylogenetic analysis of E. granulosus strains using the mitochondrial ATP6, ND1, ND3 and CO1 genes was performed using maximum likelihood, neighbour-joining and maximum parsimony methods [4].
  • Genotypes in the cervid-wolf life-cycle are poorly known, especially in Europe. In this study, 33 Echinococcus isolates from cervids from Finland and Sweden were characterized using mitochondrial ND1 gene sequencing [4].

Associations of ND1 with chemical compounds

  • Both the structure and size of the hydrophobic side chain of the acceptor affected its affinity for complex I. The ND1 subunit of bovine complex I is a mitochondrially encoded protein that binds the inhibitor dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCCD) covalently [Yagi and Hatefi (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 16150-16155] [3].
