Chromosomal localization of the human gene encoding the 51-kDa subunit of mitochondrial complex I (NDUFV1) to 11q13

Genomics. 1993 Nov;18(2):435-9. doi: 10.1006/geno.1993.1493.


The 51-kDa flavoprotein subunit of mitochondrial NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase (Complex I) [NADH dehydrogenase (ubiquinone), flavoprotein 1 (51 kDa); EC] plays an important role in the formation of the NADH-binding site and is believed to be the principal site of entry for electrons donated by NADH into the respiratory chain. Human cDNA fragments of the 51-kDa protein were generated by polymerase chain reaction and used to localize the gene (NDUFV1) for this subunit to 11q13 by two separate techniques. This region of the human genome is strongly implicated in a number of different forms of cancer.
