Prevalence of the A1555G (12S rRNA) and tRNA Ser(UCN) Mitochondrial Mutations in Hearing-Impaired Brazilian Patients

Abstract: AbstractMitochondrial mutations are responsible for at least 1% of the cases of hereditary deafness, but the contribution of each mutation has not yet been defined in African-derived or native American genetic backgrounds. A total of 203 unselected hearing-impaired patients were screened for the presence of the mitochondrial mutation A1555G in the 12S rRNA gene and mutations in the tRNA Ser(UCN) gene in order to assess their frequency in the ethnically admixed Brazilian population. We found four individuals w…
