Abstract

MitoAnalyzer provides information about the effects of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and mutations in human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). This program determines if a single base pair (bp) change is in the noncoding or coding region, in the first, second or third bp of the codon, in a rRNA, tRNA or a protein, causes an amino acid (aa) change, the nature of that change, the position of the aa change in the protein, and the new aa sequence of the changed protein. Mutations associated with published mitochondrial diseases are noted. This program, thus, facilitates rapid analysis and evaluation of SNPs and mutations in human mtDNA.
