  2. 2. Mitochondrial DNA in Sensitive Forensic Analysis

    Author : Martina Nilsson; Marie Allen; Ulf Gyllensten; Antti Sajantila; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Genetics; Forensic genetics; Mitochondrial DNA; HVI HVII; Nuclear DNA; Quantification; Real-time PCR; Immobilised SSO probe assay; Pyrosequencing; Discrimination power; Coding region; Mixtures; Genetik;

    Abstract : Genetic profiling is commonly performed on the autosomes using multiple DNA markers. Although routine forensic DNA analysis is robust and based on reliable technologies, samples with degraded or limited amounts of DNA often fail. In these cases, the analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) can be very valuable due to the high copy number per cell. READ MORE

  3. 3. Application of Mitochondrial DNA Analysis in Contemporary and Historical Samples

    Author : Maria Lembring; Marie Allen; Niels Morling; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Forensic genetics; Mitochondrial DNA; HVI HVII; Population database; Haplotype; Haplogroup; Ancient DNA; Historical DNA samples; skeletal remains; Vasa museum; Medieval samples; Copernicus; Göring; Genetik; Genetics;

    Abstract : The mitochondrion is a tiny organelle that is the power supplier of the cell and vital to the functioning of the body organs. Additionally it contains a small circular genome of about 16 kb, present in many copies which makes the mitochondrial DNA more viable than nuclear DNA. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular insights into mitochondrial dna replication

    Author : Javier Miralles Fusté; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Mitochondria are organelles found in eukaryotic cells. These organelles produce most of the adenosine triphosphate that cells use as a source of energy. Mitochondria contain their own genomic material, a circular DNA genome (mtDNA) that encodes subunits of the respiratory chain complexes and RNA components needed for mitochondrial translation.

  5. 5. Molecular mechanisms of mitochondrial DNA replication

    Author : Teresa Holmlund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Mitochondria; mtDNA; replication; helicase; TWINKLE; POLgamma; POLgammaB; mtSSB; adPEO;

    Abstract : Mitochondria are the energy producing organelles of eukaryotic cells. The organelle has its own genome, the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) that encodes 13 subunits of the respiratory chain (RC) complexes, two rRNAs and 22 tRNAs. READ MORE
