This study is the first to interrogate the whole mtDNA in BP patients and controls and to implicate multiple novel mtDNA variants in disease susceptibility. Whole mtDNA of German BP patients (n=180) and age- and sex-matched healthy controls (n=188) were sequenced using next generation sequencing (NGS) technology, followed by the replication study using Sanger sequencing of an additional independent BP (n=89) and control cohort (n=104). While the BP and control groups showed comparable ... (Show More)
