Do mutations in the target mitochondrial DNA prevent primer binding, resulting in no DNA amplification with the REPLI-g Mitochondrial DNA Kit?

No, there is no risk that mitochondrial DNA will not be amplified due to a change in the primer binding site (i.e., caused by a deletion). This is because several primers are used in the amplification reaction with the REPLI-g Mitochondrial DNA Kit.
