    ..These findings show for the first time that human complex I is regulated via phosphorylation of the subunit encoded by the NDUFS4 gene. ..

    ..All the NDUFS4 mutations resulted in impairment of the assembly of a functional complex. The observations presented provide evidence showing a critical role of complex I in differentiation and functional activity of brain cells. ..

    ..The presence of these mutations appears to have an impact on the development of the parkinsonism, which can also occur in the heterozygous PINK1 mutation state. ..
