High mitochondrial mutation rates estimated from deep-rooting Costa Rican pedigrees
(American Journal of Physical Anthropology 2012 July ; 148(3): 327–333., 2012-07)
Estimates of mutation rates for the noncoding hypervariable Region I (HVR-I) of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) vary widely, depending on whether they are inferred from phylogenies (assuming that molecular evolution is clock-like) ...
Mitochondrial polymorphisms are associated both with increased and decreased longevity
(Hum Hered 2009;67:147–153, 2008-12-15)
Previous work compared frequency of longevity-associated polymorphisms (LAPS) in long-lived individuals and in controls from the general population (primarily in Europe and Japan), suggesting the polymorphisms are responsible ...
