High impact information on SUCLA2

  • Using transient expression and coimmunoprecipitation, we verified that mitochodrially expressed SCS-betaA associates specifically with ALAS-E and not with ALAS-N [1].
  • Our screening led to the isolation of the beta subunit of human ATP-specific succinyl CoA synthetase (SCS-betaA) [1].
  • Markedly decreased succinyl-CoA synthetase activity due to a deleterious mutation in SUCLA2, the gene encoding the beta subunit of the ADP-forming succinyl-CoA synthetase ligase, was found in muscle mitochondria of patients with encephalomyopathy and mtDNA depletion [2].
