Of those three, only MTDNA 9185 is tested by 23andMe on the V3 and V4 chips. Its rsID is rs199476138, and it's on the ATP6 gene. The pathogenic allele is C, so T is the normal version. None of the 31 ME patients who I have matched with controls have the pathogenic version, nor do the controls.
It causes Leigh Disease, though the severity can vary immensely, even in members of the same family. It usually starts in early childhood, though sometimes not until adulthood, and can be triggered by energy-taxing events like infection or surgery.

Nice to see that a PhD student is doing this kind of biomedical work on ME!
I have the v3 chip but can't find rs199476138 in my raw data
Whoops. They've labeled it as i5002865
