Human Mitochondrial Genome Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Database (mtSNP)

Contact: TANAKA Masashi
Resource classification: DNA, Protein, etc
The GiiB-JST mtSNP (mitochondrial single nucleotide
polymorphism) database provides information related to
the functional differences among mitochondrial SNPs.
This web site is useful for identification of mtSNPs
associated with age-related conditions such as
longevity, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease,
as well as those related to energy metabolism such as
obesity, thinness, and type-2 diabetes, or to
atherosclerosis. The main part of this mtSNP database
includes the entire mitochondrial genome sequences of
individuals belonging to 7 different groups, with 96
individuals in each group, namely, centenarians,
patients with Parkinson's disease, patients with
Alzheimer's disease, young obese males young non-obese
males, and type-2 diabetes patients with or without
severe vascular involvement.
This database has been developed by the Prime
Minister’s Millenium Project and the Database
Development Program of Japan Science and Technology
Corporation (JST) in collaboration with Gifu
International Institute of Biotechnology (GiiB).
