Surfeit 1

This gene encodes a protein localized to the inner mitochondrial membrane and thought to be involved in the biogenesis of the cytochrome c oxidase complex. The protein is a member of the SURF1 family, which includes the related yeast protein SHY1 and rickettsial protein RP733. The gene is located in the surfeit gene cluster, a group of very tightly linked genes that do not share sequence similarity, where it shares a bidirectional promoter with SURF2 on the opposite strand. Defects in this gene are a cause of Leigh syndrome, a severe neurological disorder that is commonly associated with systemic cytochrome c oxidase deficiency.

Ten mitochondrial disease patients harbored homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in 5 genes previously shown to cause disease: SURF1, PDHA1, NDUFV1, SUCLA2 and SUCLG1, which had 14 mutations, and 7 of the 14 mutations have not been reported.
Brain imaging and genetic risk in the pediatric population, part 1: inherited metabolic diseases.
Vedolin et al., Rio Grande, Brazil. In Neuroimaging Clin N Am, Feb 2015
Some MR phenotypes related to specific gene mutations were found, such as bilateral hypertrophy of inferior olives in patients harboring POLG and SURF1 mutations, and central lesions in the cervical spinal cord in patients with nonketotic hyperglycinemia harboring GLRX5 gene mutation.
Long survival in Leigh syndrome: new cases and review of literature.
Lücke et al., Bochum, Germany. In Neuropediatrics, 2014
It is commonly associated with systemic cytochrome c oxidase (COX) deficiency and mutations in the SURF1 gene (MIM 185620), encoding a putative assembly or maintenance factor of COX.
Noninvasive diagnostics of mitochondrial disorders in isolated lymphocytes with high resolution respirometry.
Houštěk et al., Praha, Czech Republic. In Bba Clin, 2014
Low respiration with NADH-dependent substrates and increased respiration with glycerol-3-phosphate revealed complex I defects; changes in p 50 for oxygen and elevated uncoupling control ratio pointed to complex IV deficiency due to SURF1 or SCO2 mutation; high oligomycin sensitivity of state 3-ADP respiration, upregulated mitochondrial membrane potential and low content of complex V were found in lymphocytes with ATP synthase deficiency due to TMEM70 mutations.

All three patients with confirmed CIV deficiency due to mutations in the SURF1 gene exhibited significantly lower amounts of CIV than the similarly aged controls; significantly lower amounts were also observed in two new patients, for whom later molecular analysis also confirmed pathologic mutations in the SURF1 gene.

Houštěk et al., Praha, Czech Republic. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2012
Analysis of fibroblast cell lines from 9 patients with SURF1 mutations revealed a 70% decrease of the COX complex content to be associated with 32-54% upregulation of respiratory chain complexes I, III and V and accumulation of Cox5a subunit.
Peripheral neuropathy associated with mitochondrial disease in children.
Ouvrier et al., Sydney, Australia. In Dev Med Child Neurol, 2012
While it is not definite that the characteristics of the neuropathy would help in directing genetic testing without the requirement for invasive skin, muscle or liver biopsies, there appears to be some evidence for this hypothesis in Leigh syndrome, in which nuclear SURF1 mutations cause a demyelinating neuropathy and mitochondrial DNA MTATP6 mutations cause an axonal neuropathy.
