Please note: One kit is sufficient for 50 samples if Adherent cell or Suspension cells are used and for 25 samples if tissue is used.
Mitochondria are semi-autonomous organelles which functions in aging process, apoptosis, anti-HIV drugs, and cancers. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) has a very high mutation rate and the mutations on mtDNA appear to be related to certain diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, and muscle disorders. Isolation and quantification of mtDNA are often required to study the relationships between the diseases and mtDNA.
