A microdeletion in cytochrome c oxidase ( COX) subunit III associated with COX deficiency and recurrent myoglobinuria.

We have identified a 15-bp microdeletion in a highly conserved region of the mitochondrially encoded gene for cytochrome c oxidase ( COX) subunit III in a patient with severe isolated COX deficiency and recurrent myoglobinuria. The mutant mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) comprised 92% of the mtDNA in muscle and 0.7% in leukocytes. Immunoblots and immunocytochemistry suggested a lack of assembly or instability of the complex. Microdissected muscle fibres revealed significantly higher portions of mutant mtDNA in COX-negative than in COX-positive fibres. This represents the first case of isolated COX deficiency to be defined at the molecular level.[1]
