Succinate dehydrogenase complex, subunit C, integral membrane protein (SDHC) is a gene that encodes a protein that is a component of succinate dehydrogenase. The protein anchors other proteins of the complex to the inner mitochondrial membrane. Missense and silent mutations are observed in cancers such as biliary tract cancer, ovarian cancer, and pancreatic cancer.

SDHC is altered in 0.77% of all cancers with breast invasive ductal carcinoma, bladder urothelial carcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, invasive breast carcinoma, and dedifferentiated liposarcoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

The most common alterations in SDHC are SDHC Amplification (0.59%), SDHC Mutation (0.27%), SDHC R133* (0.02%), SDHC T33M (0.01%), and SDHC L5F (0.01%) [3].
