Individual human hair mitochondrial DNA control region heteroplasmy proportions in mothers and children

Mitochondrion

Jan 18, 2006

Qingxue Wang, R G Boles

Abstract

Due to maternal inheritance, lack of recombination and a high polymorphic density, the mtDNA control region hypervariable (HV) regions are well suited for forensic identification using a maternal relative as the known sample. This analysis can be performed in hair, however, heteroplasmy...read more

Electron Transport Chain Biology

The electron transport chain (ETC) facilitates the transfer of electrons through redox while transferring protons across the membrane into the intermembrane space. This feed focuses on the structure and mechanism of the ETC as well as mitochondrial disorders caused by defects in the oxidative phosphorylation pathway.
