SummaryA good standard reference for the highly polymorphic human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence is essential for studies of normal and disease-related nucleotide variants in the mitochondrial genome. A consensus sequence for the human mitochondrial genome has been derived from thirteen unrelated mtDNA sequences. We report 128 nucleotide variants of the human mtDNA sequence, and 62 amino acid variants of the human mitochondrial translation products, observed in the coding region of these… 

Corrections to the human mitochondrial ribosomal RNA sequences

Two new errors and one consensus change were identified in the human mitochondrial Cambridge consensus sequence. The errors are an A to G substitution at nucleotide 750 in the 12S rRNA gene and a

Studies on Specific Nucleotide Mutations in the Coding Region of the ATP6 Gene of Human Mitochondrial Genome in Populations of Papuan Province-Indonesia

The aims of this study are to create a database of normal human variants of Papuan and its translation products, while the aim in particular is the amplification of fragments of 4.1 kb of human mtDNA and determine the nucleotide sequence.

The diversity present in 5140 human mitochondrial genomes.

Variants Analysis of Human Mitochondrial Genome Mutation: Study on Indonesian Human Tissues

It is shown that mutation variants between tissues in a normal human individual (not associated with diseases caused by mtDNA mutations) are monomorphic.

Mitochondrial Genome Mutation Analysis: Indonesian Human mtG Comparation and Several GenBank Sequence Data on Gene Control and Encoding Regions

The result of mutation analysis shows the presence of point mutation in some mtG region fragments with different mutation proportions, which opens a new paradigm for mutation analysis on ATP6 areas other than the mtG D-loop.

Genetic Mutations in the Papuan Human Mitochondrial Genome: Studies in Gene Control Regions and Gene Coding Using REPLI-g

The results of mutation analysis through the mtDNA cloning process can be concluded that variations in the length of the poly-C series in the same sample indicate the presence of mtDNA subpopulations in certain individuals, also known as heteroplasms.

Analysis of the mitochondrial genome in sudden infant death syndrome

The mitochondrial genome and its association with sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is investigated and three substitutions, A11467G, A12308G and G12372A, comprising a haplogroup were present in four infants diagnosed as pure SIDS.

The case for the continuing use of the revised Cambridge Reference Sequence (rCRS) and the standardization of notation in human mitochondrial DNA studies

It is preferred to maintain the rCRS and to report mtDNA profiles by employing the hitherto predominant circumfix style, to guard against misunderstandings about reporting mtDNA variation.

Sequence of the human homologue of a mitochondrially encoded murine transplantation antigen in patients with multiple sclerosis

Analysis of DNA sequence of the corresponding region of human mitochondria in 87 patients with MS, 10 with Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy in association with an MS like illness, and 31 control subjects finds no evidence that polymorphism in this region contributes to genetic susceptibility in MS.

Sequence analysis of mitochondrial DNA in a new maternally inherited encephalomyopathy

Screening of a large series of DNA samples consistently failed to detect the 9-bp insertion, with two exceptions: a patient suffering from a syndrome virtually identical to that described in the original family and a child affected by bilateral striatal necrosis, a disorder which has been attributed to impairment of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation.



Sequence and organization of the human mitochondrial genome

The complete sequence of the 16,569-base pair human mitochondrial genome is presented and shows extreme economy in that the genes have none or only a few noncoding bases between them, and in many cases the termination codons are not coded in the DNA but are created post-transcriptionally by polyadenylation of the mRNAs.

Maternal inheritance of human mitochondrial DNA.

The results of this study demonstrate that human mitochondrial DNA is maternally inherited and represents a convenient way to obtain data on mitochondrial DNA variation in both individuals and populations.

Mitochondrial DNA polymorphism in Japanese. II. Analysis with restriction enzymes of four or five base pair recognition.

Phylogenetic analysis of the present data indicates that at least two distinct lineages exist in the Japanese population.

Deletions of muscle mitochondrial DNA in patients with mitochondrial myopathies

Observations demonstrate that mtDNA heteroplasmy can occur in man and that human disease may be associated with defects of the mitochondrial genome.

Rapid evolution of animal mitochondrial DNA.

The rate of evolution of the mitochondrial genome appears to exceed that of the single-copy fraction of the nuclear genome by a factor of about 10 and is likely to be an extremely useful molecule to employ for high-resolution analysis of the evolutionary process.

Increase of deleted mitochondrial DNA in the striatum in Parkinson's disease and senescence.

Tissue distribution of mutant mitochondrial DNA in mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS)

The distribution of mutant mitochondrial DNA with A-to-G substitution mutation of tRNALeu(UUR) in various autopsied tissues from a patient with mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes is analysed.

A tRNA(Lys) mutation in the mtDNA is the causal genetic lesion underlying myoclonic epilepsy and ragged-red fiber (MERRF) syndrome.

Observed patterns of mitochondrial translation products were observed in the skeletal muscle of patients, consistent with the expected consequential defect in protein synthesis, and provided evidence that the base substitution is a causal mutation for MERRF.
