Summation

Mitochondrial thiamine pyrophosphate carrier (SLC25A19, DNC, MUP1) was originally thought to be a deoxyribonucleotide (DNC) carrier but has since been identified from enzyme kinetics, gene knockout studies and clinical samples from Amish Microcephaly (MCPHA) patients, to be a transporter of thiamine pyrophosphate (ThDP) into mitochondria (Kang & Samuels 2008). ThDP is a cofactor for the mitochondrial enzymes pyruvate dehydrogenase, alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase, and branched chain amino acid dehydrogenase. The biochemical phenotype of MCPHA may be attributable to decreased activity of these enzymes (Siu et al. 2010).
