Abstract: We investigated the potential contribution of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variants, haplogroups, and polymorphisms in nuclear genes essential for mitochondrial biogenesis and function (PGC-1α TFAM) to late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) risk. Epistatic interaction analysis was conducted between the studied variables. Our results demonstrate that mtDNA haplogroups and subhaplogroups with putative role in partial uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation are significantly associated with a decreased LOAD risk (OR …
