Abstract. Sequence variation in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) may cause slight differences both in the functioning of the respiratory chain and in free radical production, and an association between certain mtDNA haplogroups and longevity has been suggested. In order to determine further the role of mtDNA in longevity, we studied the frequencies of mtDNA haplogroups and haplogroup clusters among elderly subjects and controls in a Finnish population. Samples were obtained from 225 persons aged 90–91… Expand
Mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms associated with longevity in the Turkish population.
TLDR
A role for mitochondrial genome variations and the functionality of oxidative phosphorylation in longevity is supported and the whole mtDNA of the Turkish population is sequenced for the first time. Expand
MITOCHONDRIAL DNA HAPLOGROUPS IN A CHINESE UYGUR POPULATION AND THEIR POTENTIAL ASSOCIATION WITH LONGEVITY
1 The haplogroups and polymorphisms of mitochondrial (mt) DNA are associated with longevity. This association is highly geographically dependent. The aim of the present study was to determine theExpand
Absence of association between mitochondrial DNA C150T polymorphism and longevity in a Han Chinese population
TLDR
The results did not show a universal association between the mitochondrial C150T polymorphism and longevity in this population, and even when mtDNA haplogroups defined by C 150T and gender were taken into account, there was no significant association with longevity. Expand
Association of Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups with Exceptional Longevity in a Chinese Population
TLDR
The association of mitochondrial DNA haplogroups with exceptional longevity in a Chinese population support the effects of mtDNA haplog groups on the prevalence of extreme longevity. Expand
Association of the mitochondrial DNA haplogroup J with longevity is population specific
TLDR
It is shown that, in this population, haplogroup J does not play a significant role in longevity, and the association of mtDNA inherited variability with longevity is population specific. Expand
A combination of three common inherited mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms promotes longevity in Finnish and Japanese subjects
TLDR
It is suggested that longevity is partly determined by epistatic interactions involving these three mtDNA loci, as well as the 150T polymorphism in the noncoding region. Expand
Association of mitochondrial haplogroup J and mtDNA oxidative damage in two different North Spain elderly populations
TLDR
The results suggest that J mitochondrial variant, that induce lower mtDNA damage, could present a phenotypic survival advantage to environmental conditions and, thus, accumulate in elderly population. Expand
Are mitochondrial haplogroups associated with extreme longevity? A study on a Spanish cohort
TLDR
The data confirm that the potential effects of mitochondrial haplogroups on human longevity might be population/geographic specific, with important differences between studies arising from the different living environment and ethnic background of the study cohorts. Expand
Association of mtDNA haplogroup F with healthy longevity in the female Chuang population, China
TLDR
Genotyping 15 variants for 10 haplogroups in Chuang subjects found that haplogroup F was significantly associated with longevity in females of Zhuang population of China, and suggests that the non-synonymous variant m.13928G>C in haplog group F was also associated withongevity in female Zhuang Chinese which might account for the beneficial effect of F.

Mitochondrial genetics of exceptional longevity in multigeneration matrilineages
TLDR
Overall survival and cause-specific mortality in the several thousand individuals aged 40 years or older whose mtDNA genotypes could be imputed from the 374 fully sequenced control mtDNAs are analyzed. Expand

Mitochondrial DNA polymorphism: its role in longevity of the Irish population
TLDR
ThemtDNA genome has been implicated as playing a pivotal role in determining the longevity and success of the human lifespan and a PCR-RFLP methodology was used to identify polymorphic restriction enzyme sites within a 2643 bp region of the mtDNA genome but statistical analysis failed to show any significant associations. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA inherited variants are associated with successful aging and longevity in humans
TLDR
Since haplogroups are defined on the basis of inherited variants, these data show that mtDNA inherited variability could play a role in successful aging and longevity. Expand
Inherited Variability of the Mitochondrial Genome and Successful Aging in Humans
TLDR
The results obtained by screening mtDNA haplogroups in about 800 Italians of different ages agree with the hypothesis that the inherited variability of the mitochondrial genome is associated with the chance of successful aging and longevity in humans. Expand
Mitochondrial Genotype Associated with French Caucasian Centenarians
TLDR
The notion that mtDNA variations may influence the susceptibility to age-associated diseases and the survival outcome and the observation that distinct mtDNA polymorphisms are associated with longevity in two evolutionarily distinct populations (Asian/Caucasian) strengthens the possibility that mt DNA variation is relevant to life expectation. Expand
Paradoxes in longevity: sequence analysis of mtDNA haplogroup J in centenarians
TLDR
The general picture that emerges from the study is that the J haplogroup of centenarians is surprisingly similar to that found in complex diseases, as well as in Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy, which implies that the same mutations could predispose to disease or longevity. Expand
Classification of European mtDNAs from an analysis of three European populations.
TLDR
The conclusion that most haplogroups observed in Europe are Caucasoid-specific, and that at least some of them occur at varying frequencies in different Caucasoid populations, is supported. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variation in human evolution and disease.
TLDR
All mtDNA lineages are not equal, which may provide insights into the extreme environments that were encountered by the authors' ancient ancestor, and which may be of great importance in understanding the pathophysiology of mitochondrial disease. Expand
Mitochondrial genome variation and the origin of modern humans
TLDR
The global mtDNA diversity in humans is described based on analyses of the complete mtDNA sequence of 53 humans of diverse origins, providing a concurrent view on human evolution with respect to the age of modern humans. Expand
Phylogenetic network for European mtDNA.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence in the coding region of mtDNA was determined from 121 Finns, by conformation-sensitive gel electrophoresis and subsequent sequencing and by direct sequencing of the D loop, which allowed the compilation of unambiguous phylogenetic networks. Expand
Evidence for mtDNA Admixture between the Finns and the Saami
TLDR
The high frequency of certain mtDNA haplotypes considered to be Saami specific in the Finnish population suggests a genetic admixture, which appears to be more pronounced in northern Finland. Expand
