Highly dynamic mitochondrial morphology is a prerequisite for fusion and fission. Mitochondrial fusion may represent a rescue mechanism for impaired mitochondria by exchanging constituents (proteins, lipids and mitochondrial DNA) and thus maintaining functionality. Here we followed for the first time the dynamics of a protein complex of the respiratory(More)
Renal oncocytomas are benign tumors characterized by dense accumulation of mitochondria the cause of which remains unknown so far. Consistently, mitochondrial DNA content and the amounts and catalytic activities of several oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) complexes were known to be increased in these tumors, but it was not ascertained that the OXPHOS(More)
The yeast F1F0-ATP synthase forms dimeric complexes in the mitochondrial inner membrane and in a manner that is supported by the F0-sector subunits, Su e and Su g. Furthermore, it has recently been demonstrated that the binding of the F1F0-ATPase natural inhibitor protein to purified bovine F1-sectors can promote their dimerization in solution (Cabezon, E.,(More)
