[ODPX_HUMAN] Defects in PDHX are the cause of pyruvate dehydrogenase E3-binding protein deficiency (PDHXD) [MIM:245349].
[ODPX_HUMAN] Required for anchoring dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase (E3) to the dihydrolipoamide transacetylase (E2) core of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complexes of eukaryotes. This specific binding is essential for a functional PDH complex.
