Molecular genetic investigation of mitochondrial dysfunction in relation to migraine susceptibility

Stuart, Shani (2015) Molecular genetic investigation of mitochondrial dysfunction in relation to migraine susceptibility. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


The aim of this research was to assess the role of genetic variation in mitochondrial function and how this relates to migraine pathophysiology. Using our unique Norfolk Island population, a custom in-house next generation sequencing methodology was developed. This data for the first time showed that there is a molecular genetic link between mitochondrial dysfunction and migraine susceptibility. This work has provided the foundation for further studies aimed at utilising the identified markers in improved migraine diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
