The authors sequenced POLG1, C10ORF2, and ANT1 in 38 sporadic progressive external ophthalmoplegia patients with multiple mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) deletions. Causative mutations were identified in approximately10% of cases, with two unrelated individuals harboring a novel premature stop codon mutation (1356T>G). None had a mutation in C10ORF2 or ANT1. In the majority of patients, the primary nuclear genetic defect is likely to affect other unknown genes important for mtDNA maintenance. Copyright © 2006 by AAN Enterprises, Inc.
