The Mitochondrial genome is extremely small when compared to the nuclear genome, and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations are complex and difficult to trace, but they play an important role in developing Myopathy, a disease with debilitating physical, developmental, and cognitive disabilities. This disease is maternally inherited and may affect multiple family members and multiple generations. A good way to find out more about genetic predisposition to Myopathy is to talk to a doctor or genetic counselor at Ayass BioScience. Call us today at 972-668-6005.
