Another recent study (92) from India showed a novel missense mutation (C11994T) in the ND4 gene of oligoasthenozoospermic samples and it has been proposed that the wild type allele had totally replaced by the mutant allele over several generation in the maternal lineage leading to the mutantDNA homoplasmy.

A complete homoplasmy (the same mtDNA sequence) for each of these copies is unlikely because of the immense amounts of mtDNA present in the body.
In these healthy, normal cells, the DNA sequence in all of these copies of mitochondrial DNA is identical, a state known as homoplasmy.
