Paracoccus denitrificans and the evolutionary origin of the mitochondrion
It is demonstrated that Paracoccus denitrificans resembles a mitochondrion more closely than do other bacteria, in that it effectively assembles in a single organism those features of theExpand

Sucrose metabolism in mango fruit during ripening
Abstract The amounts of sucrose, starch, fructose and glucose were determined in ripening mango fruits (cv. Haden) grown in Venezuela. Samples were taken at two-day intervals, over a ripening periodExpand

From extracellular to intracellular: the establishment of mitochondria and chloroplasts
Paracoccus and Rhodopseudomonas are unusual among bacteria in having a majority of the biochemical features of mitochondria; blue-green algae have many of the features of chloroplasts. The theory ofExpand
