Abstract

Loss-of-function mutations in TTC19 (tetra-tricopeptide repeat domain 19) have been associated with severe neurological phenotypes and mitochondrial respiratory chain complex III deficiency. We previously demonstrated the mitochondrial localization of TTC19 and its link with complex III biogenesis. Here we provide detailed insight into the mechanistic role of TTC19, by investigating a Ttc19−/− mouse model that shows progressive neurological and metabolic decline decreased complex III activity and increased production of reactive oxygen species. By using both the Ttc19−/− mouse model and a range of human cell lines we demonstrate that TTC19 binds to the fully assembled complex III dimer i.e. after the incorporation of the iron-sulfur Rieske protein (UQCRFS1). The in situ maturation of UQCRFS1 produces N-terminal polypeptides which remain bound to holocomplex III. We show that in normal conditions these UQCRFS1 fragments are rapidly removed but when TTC19 is absent they accumulate within complex III causing its structural and functional impairment.
