Mitochondrial DNA changes in glaucoma patients

Mitochondrial DNA nucleotide changes in primary congenital glaucoma patients.

Genetic analysis showed that glaucoma patients belong to three groups. Fifty percent of the patients belonged to one group (the H2a2a lineage of the N-derived haplogroup*).
