  • Name Abey Bandara
  • Institute Virginia Tech

Tool Details

  • Tool name: HEK293?NDUFS2 Cell Line
  • Alternate names: HEK293?NDUFS2
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: HEK293
  • Organism: Human
  • Disease: Leighs; Mitochondrial disease; cardiomyopathy; encephalomyopathy
  • Description: The HEK293?NDUFS2 cell line expresses a CRISPR/Cas9 mutated NDUFS2, shown to significantly alter the function of complex I (CI) of the mitochondrial electron transport chain. This NDUFS2 mutant cell line displays disruptions to NDUFS2 that mimic isolated complex I deficiency and can be used as a powerful model of several types of mitochondrial disease. Specific disruptions in the NDUFS2 gene have been reported to present clinically as the following disease conditions: -Leigh syndrome -Cardiomyopathy -Encephalomyopathy -Miscellaneous: basal ganglia and brainstem lesions, seizures, hypotonia, neonatal hypotonia, amaurosis, nystagmus, dysmorphic features, epilepsy and signs of brainstem involvement, and lactic acidosis.
