MTFMT gene

mitochondrial methionyl-tRNA formyltransferase

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

The protein encoded by this nuclear gene localizes to the mitochondrion, where it catalyzes the formylation of methionyl-tRNA. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2011]

From UniProt:

Formylates methionyl-tRNA in mitochondria. A single tRNA(Met) gene gives rise to both an initiator and an elongator species via an unknown mechanism.

  • Combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency 15

From UniProt:

Leigh syndrome (LS): An early-onset progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the presence of focal, bilateral lesions in one or more areas of the central nervous system including the brainstem, thalamus, basal ganglia, cerebellum and spinal cord. Clinical features depend on which areas of the central nervous system are involved and include subacute onset of psychomotor retardation, hypotonia, ataxia, weakness, vision loss, eye movement abnormalities, seizures, and dysphagia. [MIM:256000]

Combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency 15 (COXPD15): An autosomal recessive, mitochondrial, neurologic disorder characterized by features of Leigh syndrome and combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency. Clinical features include mild global developmental delay, white matter abnormalities, ataxia, incoordination, speech and reading difficulties, T2-weighted hyperintensities in the basal ganglia, corpus callosum, and brainstem.
