Role of the mitochondrial DNA 16184-16193 poly-C tract in type 2 diabetes.

Abstract:

Recent evidence suggests that polymorphic genetic variation in the non-coding region of mitochondrial DNA (the 16184-16193 polycytosine [poly-C] tract) contributes to the cause of type 2 diabetes, but previous studies only just reached significance. We aimed to investigate this association. We compared patients with type 2 diabetes (n=992) with two independent control groups (n=536, n=1029) from the UK, and saw no difference in the frequency of the 16184-16193 poly-C tract. This finding was c...
