Iron-sulfur (Fe-S) clusters are necessary for several mitochondrial enzymes and other subcellular compartment proteins.;They contain sulfur and iron, and are created via several steps that include cysteine desulfurases, iron donors,;chaperones, and scaffold proteins. This gene encodes the two isomeric forms, ISCU1 and ISCU2, of the Fe-S cluster;scaffold protein. Mutations in this gene have been found in patients with myopathy with severe exercise intolerance;and myoglobinuria.
