Exploring frataxin function

Frataxin is a nuclear-encoded mitochondrial protein highly conserved in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Its deficiency was initially described as the phenotype of Friedreich's ataxia, an autosomal recessive disease in humans. Although several functions have been described for frataxin, that is, involvement in Fe-S cluster and heme synthesis, energy conversion and oxidative phosphorylation, iron handling and response to oxidative damage, its precise function remains unclear.
