Mithocondrial HVR1 Polymorphism in Italy
Polymorphism within the mainframe of mitochondrial DNA sequence (mtDNA) is an interesting source of human molecular diversity. Most of the mtDNA sequence variation occurs at two regions (namely, HVRI and HVRII) encompassing a relatively short area (800 base pairs) of the entire mtDNA genome. Both have been used in studies addressing the structure and relationships of human populations (Vigilant 1989).
