Abstract

Mitochondrial tRNALeu(UUR) gene nt 3242 A-->G mutation should be considered in diabetic patients with the above-mentioned clinical features. The genetic diagnosis in daily clinical practice can be performed with allele specific priming amplification, or PCR/Hae III or Apa I digestion which are technically simple to perform and diagnostically easy to define.
