The highly variable region of the mtDNA control region (D-Loop) was amplified using primers mtDNA-F (5'-CTG TCC ATA TCA TGA CTA CTT G-3') and mtDNA-R (5'-GGT CTT AGC TTG TAG AGA GGT C-3'), which were referenced from a rice frog sequence.
Nowadays, nuclear DNA mutations have been proven to be effective in tumor development and progression, but the relation between mtDNA and tumorigenesis has not been fully elucidated yet.
