A preliminary investigation on the association between the traits of restriction fragment length polymorphism of mitochondrial DNA control region and aerobic performance in Australian endurance cyclists

By Matthew B Brearley, Shi Zhou, Angela Delves and Peter R Baverstock


This investigation was to test the hypothesis that the mitochondrial DNA displacement loop polymorphisms (morphs) are related to the differences in maximum oxygen consumption (VO2max) and endurance performance of Australian endurance cyclists. The preliminary findings demonstrate no difference in frequency of morphs between elite and non-elite cyclists, in spite of significant differences in VO2max
