7.
Which of the following is NOT evidence that mitochondria are involved in aging?

Studies in mice have revealed that deletions in mtDNA were common in atrophied muscle fibers, but absent in fibers from normal tissue.

Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in a large number of chronic disorders such as type 2 diabetes and neurodegenerative disorders.

The term heteroplasmy refers to mitochondria that are a mixture of normal and abnormal mitochondria.
