A mitochondrion as the structural basis of the formation of a cell-type-specific organelle inDictyostelium development

The mitochondrion has been mainly given attention as a self-reproductive and respiratory organelle. We report here that the mitochondrion may participate in the formation of a cell-type-specific organelle, coupling with the Golgi complex. During the development ofDictyostelium discoideum, the two types of cells, i.e., the anterior prestalk cells and the… CONTINUE READING
