Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA or mDNA) is the DNA located in mitochondria, cellular organelles within eukaryotic cells that convert chemical energy from food into a form that cells can use, adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
Mitochondrial disease refers to several hundred genetic diseases caused by mutations (or changes) in either mitochondrial DNA or nuclear DNA. These mutations affect the ability for the mitochondria to properly function within a cell. Mitochondria are tiny organelles present in nearly every cell.
