Brief description Mitochondrial respiratory chain disorders are a devastating group of disorders, potentially affecting any organ of the body, with no effective therapies currently available. The majority of these disorders have a childhood onset and the genetic basis for most of them is unknown. Identification of the genes responsible for these disorders in specific families would greatly improve the accuracy and usefulness of genetic counselling, and an understanding of their biology may assist the development of effective therapies.
