The data is related to the research article entitled "Hypomyelinating leukodystrophy-associated missense mutation in HSPD1 blunts mitochondrial dynamics" [1]. In addition to hypomyelinating leukodystrophy (HLD) 4 (OMIM no. 612233), it is known that spastic paraplegia (SPG) 13 (OMIM no. 605280) is caused by HSPD1's amino acid mutation. Two amino acid mutations Val-98-to-Ile (V98I) and Gln-461-to-Glu (Q461E) are associated with SPG13 [2]. In order to investigate the effects of HSPD1's V98I or Q461E mutant on mitochondrial morphological changes, we transfected each of the respective mutant-encoding genes into Cos-7 cells. Either of V98I or Q461E mutant exhibited increased number of mitochondria and short length mitochondrial morphologies. Using MitoTracker dye-incorporating assay, decreased mitochondrial membrane potential was also observed in both cases. The data described here supports that SPG13-associated HSPD1 mutant participates in causing aberrant mitochondrial morphological changes with decreased activities.
