Corrections to the human mitochondrial ribosomal RNA sequences

Hum Genet. 1994 Jan;93(1):87-8. doi: 10.1007/BF00218923.


Two new errors and one consensus change were identified in the human mitochondrial Cambridge consensus sequence. The errors are an A to G substitution at nucleotide 750 in the 12S rRNA gene and a single nucleotide deletion at nt 3107 in the 16S rRNA gene. The consensus change is nt 2706 A-->G in the 16S rRNA gene.
