The following pages give the details of each of the 22 transfer RNA found in mtDNA.
The pages give detail of:
- human and other primate sequences
- human NUMT sequences
- the mutations found in published Human mtDNA sequences.
For a fuller explanation of tRNAs look at the JoGG article:
The Medical Implications of Complete Mitochondrial DNA Sequencing
In January 2006 the number of different mutations for each tRNA is: Alanine 12 Arginine 8 Asparagine 5 Aspartic acid 9 Cysteine 18 Glutamine 15 Glutamic acid 9 Glycine 11 Histidine 11 Isoleucine 7 Leucine (CUN) 10 Leucine (UUR) 5 Lysine 10 Methionine 6 Phenylalanine 12 Proline 10 Serine (UCN) 11 Serine (AGY) 13 Threonine 28 Tryptophan 12 Tyrosine 6 Valine 10
