Different methods to determine length heteroplasmy within the mitochondrial control region


The first and second hypervariable regions of the human mitochondrial DNA control region contain two homopolymeric stretches of cytosine (nt 16184–16193 and nt 303–315, respectively). According to the Cambridge reference sequence these homopolymeric stretches are interrupted by thymine (T), at positions 16189 and 310, respectively. Monotonous runs of the… (More)
