Phosphate carrier protein, mitochondrial isoform b precursor or SLC25A3 is involved in the functioning of ATP synthase complex, also known as complex V.[1]

ME/CFS[edit | edit source]

A small study by Sweetman et al. (2020) found that SLC25A3 expression was increased in patients with ME/CFS compared to healthy controls.[1]

mitochondria - Important parts of the biological cell, with each mitochondrion encased within a mitochondrial membrane. Mitochondria are best known for their role in energy production, earning them the nickname "the powerhouse of the cell". Mitochondria also participate in the detection of threats and the response to these threats. One of the responses to threats orchestrated by mitochondria is apoptosis, a cell suicide program used by cells when the threat can not be eliminated.

ME/CFS - An acronym that combines myalgic encephalomyelitis with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes they are combined because people have trouble distinguishing one from the other. Sometimes they are combined because people see them as synonyms of each other.
