  • Mitochondrial complex I deficiency, nuclear type 27 (MC1DN27) [MIM:618248]: A form of mitochondrial complex I deficiency, the most common biochemical signature of mitochondrial disorders, a group of highly heterogeneous conditions characterized by defective oxidative phosphorylation, which collectively affects 1 in 5-10000 live births. Clinical disorders have variable severity, ranging from lethal neonatal disease to adult-onset neurodegenerative disorders. Phenotypes include macrocephaly with progressive leukodystrophy, non-specific encephalopathy, cardiomyopathy, myopathy, liver disease, Leigh syndrome, Leber hereditary optic neuropathy, and some forms of Parkinson disease. MC1DN27 transmission pattern is consistent with autosomal recessive inheritance. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22499348}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
