Natural reassignment of CUU and CUA sense codons to alanine in Ashbya mitochondria
The discovery of diverse codon reassignment events has demonstrated that the canonical genetic code is not universal. Studying coding reassignment at the molecular level is critical for understandingExpand

Massive programmed translational jumping in mitochondria
Significance During translation, ribosomes decode mRNAs in a sequential fashion. In this paper, we report the discovery of more than 80 translational bypassing elements (byps) 27–55 nt long inExpand

Yeast mitochondrial RNase P, RNase Z and the RNA degradosome are part of a stable supercomplex
Initial steps in the synthesis of functional tRNAs require 5′- and 3′-processing of precursor tRNAs (pre-tRNAs), which in yeast mitochondria are achieved by two endonucleases, RNase P and RNase Z. InExpand

Supercomplexes multifonctionnels chez les mitochondries, et chez E. coli
It is known that processes such as transcription, translation and intron splicing require a multitude of proteins (plus a few non-protein components) organized in large ‘molecular machines’. But,Expand
