The results suggested that 50 EST including 12 mitochondrial genes showed homology with previously identified genes in GenBank DNA database. 12 have uncharacteristic homology in EST database and 21 have no matching sequences.
The study of 256 type 2 diabetics and 140 health control showed that the prevalenceof the mitochondrial gene ND13316 G→A mutation is 3.52 %in T2DMpatients in Northern China . The mtND13316 G→A mutation contributes to the development of T2DM,but is not a major suscepti-ble gene .
A total of about 2,500 white clones of Mol7CMS-J mitochondrial gene library were obtained with the average size of ca 18.24kb, ranging from 5kb to 40kb, 63.6% inserts came from mitochondrial genome and represented 48X mitochondrial genome equivalents.
Objective To detect the gene expression level of mitochondrial genome in single human oocyte or embryo,and to explore the relationship between the gene expression level of mtDNA and oocyte developmental potential.
Combining the data obtained in the studies of nuclear and mitochondrial genes, a molecular-data-based scenario could be suggested for theChironomus genus evolution.
Increased Expression of Several Mitochondrial Genes in Human and Monkey B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas
Mitochondrial genes overexpressed in human and monkey B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (B-NHLs) were sought via subtraction hybridization, cloning, and differential screening of the resulting cDNA libraries.
The cDNAs of mitochondrial genes constituted an appreciable proportion of all lymphoma-specific cDNAs.
Lymphomogenesis was associated with upregulation of a set of mitochondrial genes, which varied with lymphoma type but always included NADHIV.
Structure and Diversity of the Mitochondrial Gene Pools of South Siberians
The multistep regulation of mitochondrial gene expression in higher plants is considered.
To study the mitochondrial gene pool structure in Yakuts, polymorphism of mtDNA hypervariable segment I (16,024-16,390) was analyzed in 191 people sampled from the indigenous population of the Sakha Republic.
A significant difference in the distribution of mutations was revealed for the mitochondrial gene pools of the regional human populations.
