Mitochondrially encoded NADH dehydrogenase 2 is protein that in humans is encoded by the mitochondrial gene MT-ND2 gene. The ND2 protein is a subunit of NADH dehydrogenase , which is located in the mitochondrial inner membrane and is the largest of the five complexes of the electron transport chain. Variants of MT-ND2 are associated with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes , Leigh's syndrome , Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy and increases in adult BMI.

Location of the MT-ND2 gene in the human mitochondrial genome. MT-ND2 is one of the seven NADH dehydrogenase mitochondrial genes (yellow boxes).

Mitochondrially encoded NADH dehydrogenase 2 is protein that in humans is encoded by the mitochondrial gene MT-ND2 gene. The ND2 protein is a subunit of NADH dehydrogenase (ubiquinone), which is located in the mitochondrial inner membrane and is the largest of the five complexes of the electron transport chain. Variants of MT-ND2 are associated with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes (MELAS), Leigh's syndrome (LS), Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) and increases in adult BMI.
