Abstract

Purpose: Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in the development of idiopathic Parkinson's disease. In this study, it was aimed to investigate the relationship between mitochondrial respiratory chain enzyme deficiency and variants in ND2 and ND4 region of Complex I and expressions of these genes. Complex IV activity and glutathione level were also studied.
