Clinical and biochemical data are reported for three patients with mitochondrial myopathy. One patient presented only with exercise-induced muscle weakness, whereas the other two showed signs of multisystem disease. Polarographic determination of oxygen uptake in skeletal muscle mitochondria suggested complex-I (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide [reduced] ubiquinone oxidoreductase) deficiency. Sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and immunoblotting with antibody to the holoenzyme of complex-I and specific antibodies to certain of the Fe-S subunits of complex-I showed a relatively normal profile in the least affected patient and a generalised reduction in the intensities of all crossreacting bands in the other two patients. The most severely affected patient also showed a disproportionate and pronounced reduction in the 24 K Fe-S subunit. Clinical severity of muscle involvement correlated with the biochemical deficiency as determined polarographically and with the immunoblot appearances.
