Mitochondrial DNA encodes some proteins of the oxidative phosphorylation enzymatic complex, playing an important role in aerobic ATP production; therefore, it can contribute to the ability to respond to endurance exercise training.

Is mitochondrial DNA profiling predictive for athletic performance?

Abstract

Mitochondrial DNA encodes some proteins of the oxidative phosphorylation enzymatic complex, playing an important role in aerobic ATP production; therefore, it can contribute to the ability to respond to endurance exercise training. The accumulation of mitochondrial mutations and the migratory processes of populations have given a great contribution to the development of haplogroups with a different distribution in the world. Several studies have shown the important role of gene polymorphisms in aerobic performance. In this review, some mitochondrial haplogroups and multiple rare alleles were taken into consideration and could be linked to the athlete's physical performance of different ethnic groups.
