24061460 Protein modeling revealed loss of function mutations of ND6 and COX-II proteins in malignant vs benign tumors
23674761 This study shows that m.14484T>C arose independently in a different mtDNA haplogroup and ethnic background in India, which may influence the clinical expression of the disease.
22947169 Point mutations m.10191T>C in mitochondrial ND3 gene, m.13513G>A in ND5 gene and m.14,453G>A in ND6 gene were detected in three Chinese children with Leigh synrome dur to complex I deficiency.
22879518 Liver MT-ND6 transcriptional activity and protein expression were decreased in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, suggesting that the expression of this mitochondrial gene may play an important role in the disease progression.
20809775 These results suggest that a different set of LHON-causing mutations is present in the South Indian population than in the European population
20691156 These data suggested that the ND6 T14502C variant may modulate the phenotypic manifestation of the G11778A mutation in these Chinese pedigrees.
20052369 the G14459A mutation is a candidate mutation for maternally inherited dystonia
20019223 missense mutation 14487T>C resulted in severe encephalopathies ranging from infantile Leigh syndrome to adult-onset progressive myoclonic epilepsy with dystonia in a five-generation family
19758471 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19732751 Molecular analysis has led to identification of the known T14502C mutation in ND6 gene in Chinese families with Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy.
