- Study Design
- 11 Japanese centenarians and 43 controls were sequenced to identify the substitution differences between centenarians and controls. Then the identified variants were examined in 37 centenarians and 252 healthy controls.
- All tested centenarians with both Mt8414T and Mt3010A carried Mt5178A. Mt5178A was related to longevity, and Mt5178C carriers were more susceptible to adult-onset diseases than those with Mt5178A.
