Application of a West Eurasian-Specific Filter for Quasi-Median Network Analysis: Sharpening the Blade for mtDNA Error Detection

Abstract The application of quasi-median networks provides an effective tool to check the quality of mtDNA data. Filtering of highly recurrent mutations prior to network analysis is required to simplify the data set and reduce the complexity of the network. The phylogenetic background determines those mutations that need to be…

Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 Infection Disturbs the Mitochondrial Network, Leading to Type I Interferon Production through the RNA Polymerase III/RIG-I Pathway

Viruses have evolved a plethora of mechanisms to impair host innate immune responses. Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), a double-stranded linear DNA virus, impairs the mitochondrial network and dynamics predominantly through the UL12.5 gene. We demonstrated that HSV-1 infection induced a remodeling of mitochondrial shape, resulting in a fragmentation…

Intergenerational Effects of Maternal Obesity on Offspring Mitochondrial Reactive Oxygen Species Production and DNA Damage

Abstract: Epidemiological studies have shown that offspring from pregnancies complicated by maternal obesity have a 4-fold greater risk for developing childhood obesity and symptoms of metabolic syndrome. The developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD) hypothesis states that certain environmental exposures during critical windows of development may have consequences for…

Role of Genetics, Epigenetics, and Environmental Factors in Human Complex Diseases from the Mitochondrial Point of View

Mitochondrial dysfunction due to alterations in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) gene expression and replication underlie several human pathologies. However, the exact mechanisms through which these alterations arise are still poorly understood. In recent years, a growing number of studies identified epigenetic mechanisms that act inside mitochondria, thus opening a new…

Decreasing mitochondrial RNA polymerase activity reverses biased inheritance of hypersuppressive mtDNA

Faithful inheritance of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is crucial for cellular respiration/oxidative phosphorylation and mitochondrial membrane potential. However, how mtDNA is transmitted to progeny is not fully understood. We utilized hypersuppressive mtDNA, a class of respiratory deficient Saccharomyces cerevisiae mtDNA that is preferentially inherited over wild-type mtDNA (rho+), to uncover the…

Nuclear DNA-encoded fragments of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) confound analysis of selection of mtDNA mutations in human primordial germ cells.

Abstract The resilience of the mitochondrial genome to a high mutational pressure depends, in part, on purifying selection against detrimental mutations in the germline. It is crucial to understand the mechanisms of this process. Recently, Floros et al. concluded that much of the purifying selection takes place during the proliferation…

Mitochondrial DNA leakage induces odontoblast inflammation via the cGAS-STING pathway

Dental caries are the most common health condition worldwide and can progress to pulpitis, a painful dental pulp infection. Odontoblasts at the pulp-dentin interface fight against these conditions by preventing bacterial invasion. In other pathological conditions, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA)-related cell stress activates the cGAS-STING pathway, which contributes to inflammation, but…
