Recently, in patients with diabetes and deafness, researchers have identified an A to G transition at position 3243 in transfer ribonucleic acid(Leu)(UUR) [3243 base-pair (bp) mutation], originally found in patients with mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and strokelike episodes. To determine the prevalence of diabetic patients with this mutation in Japan, we screened selected cohorts of diabetic patients based upon type of diabetes, family history of diabetes, and age of… CONTINUE READING
