Inactivation of mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase contributes to the respiratory deficit of yeast frataxin-deficient cells

Friedreich's ataxia is a hereditary neurodegenerative disease caused by reduced expression of mitochondrial frataxin. Frataxin deficiency causes impairment in respiratory capacity, disruption of iron homoeostasis and hypersensitivity to oxidants. Although the redox properties of NAD (NAD+ and NADH) are essential for energy metabolism, only few results are available concerning homoeostasis of these nucleotides in frataxin-deficient cells.
