The acquisitions of mitochondria and plastids were important events in the evolution of the eukaryotic cell, supplying it with compartmentalized bioenergetic and biosynthetic factories. Ancient invasions by eubacteria through symbiosis more than a billion years ago initiated these processes. Advances in geochemistry, molecular phylogeny, and cell biology have offered insight into complex molecular events that drove the evolution of endosymbionts into contemporary organelles. In losing their… Expand
Mitochondrial and plastid evolution in eukaryotes: an outsiders' perspective
TLDR
It is proposed that, in both cases, prokaryote-to-organelle conversion was driven by the internalization of host-encoded factors progressing from the outer membrane of the endosymbionts towards the intermembrane space, inner membrane and finally the organelle interior. Expand
Endosymbiosis, cell evolution, and speciation
TLDR
The history of endosymbiotic concepts to their modern-day derivative, the “serial endOSymbiosis theory”, which collectively expound on the origin of eukaryotic cell organelles (plastids, mitochondria) and subsequent endosYmbiotic events are summarized. Expand
Genomics-Informed Insights into Endosymbiotic Organelle Evolution in Photosynthetic Eukaryotes.
TLDR
It is concluded that in addition to endosymbiotic gene transfers, horizontal gene acquisitions from a broad variety of prokaryotic taxa were crucial to organelle evolution. Expand
Novel Endosymbioses as a Catalyst of Fast Speciation
TLDR
It is argued that from this evidence emerges a testable five-step scenario for the appearance of novel host lineages and horizontally transmitted endosymbionts could strongly influence the evolutionary path taken by their new hosts. Expand
Paulinella chromatophora – rethinking the transition from endosymbiont to organelle
TLDR
The current knowledge on the Paulinella chromatophora is reviewed and the interplay of reductive genome evolution, gene transfers, and trafficking of host-encoded proteins into the cyanobacterial endosymbiont contributed to transform the symbiont into a nascent photosynthetic organelle. Expand
Mitochondrion-derived organelles in protists and fungi.
TLDR
A review explores the events leading to this new understanding of mitochondrion-derived organelles in amitochondriate eukaryotes, the current state of the authors' knowledge, and future areas for investigation. Expand
The origin of eukaryotes: a reappraisal
  • C. Duve
  • Biology
  • Nature Reviews Genetics
  • 2007
TLDR
Re-examination of the question of the endosymbiotic origin of eukaryotic cells in the light of cell-biological and phylogenetic data leads to the conclusion that the first model is more likely to be the correct one. Expand

Shaping the mitochondrial proteome.
TLDR
Recent advances in the fields of comparative genomics and proteomics that are throwing light on the origin and evolution of the mitochondrial proteome are reviewed. Expand
Aphid gene of bacterial origin encodes a protein transported to an obligate endosymbiont
TLDR
This is the first report of integration between multicellular eukaryotes and bacteria to the extent of ‘organellogenesis’, and an aphid gene that was horizontally acquired from a bacterium produces protein, which is transported to an obligate intracellular bacterial symbiont. Expand

The bacterial origins of plastid division and protein import by plastids are beginning to emerge - thanks largely to the availability of a total genome sequence for a cyanobacterium. Despite existingExpand
Mitochondrial evolution : Mitochondria
TLDR
Gene sequence data strongly support a monophyletic origin of the mitochondrion from a eubacterial ancestor shared with a subgroup of the α-Proteobacteria and raise the possibility that this organelle originated at essentially the same time as the nuclear component of the eukaryotic cell rather than in a separate, subsequent event.

The Division of Endosymbiotic Organelles
TLDR
This work has shown that mitochondria and chloroplasts universally require dynamin-related guanosine triphosphatases to divide, and provides fundamental insights into the molecular events driving the division, and possibly the evolution, of organelles in eukaryotes. Expand
An Overview of Endosymbiotic Models for the Origins of Eukaryotes, Their ATP-Producing Organelles (Mitochondria and Hydrogenosomes), and Their Heterotrophic Lifestyle
TLDR
Traditional models are contrasted to an alternative endosymbiotic model (the hydrogen hypothesis), which addresses theorigin of heterotrophy and the origin of compartmentalized energy metabolism in eukaryotes. Expand
The evolution of the Calvin cycle from prokaryotic to eukaryotic chromosomes: a case study of functional redundancy in ancient pathways through endosymbiosis
TLDR
It would appear that the enzymes of central carbohydrate metabolism have evolved novel targeting possibilities regardless of their origins, which suggests a new hypothesis to explain organelle genome persistence, based on the testable idea that some organelle-encoded gene products might be toxic when present in the cytosol or other inappropriate cellular compartments.

TLDR
Gene transfer from the tobacco chloroplast genome to nuclear chromosomes under laboratory conditions is reported, opening up new chapters in the understanding of organelle–nuclear DNA dynamics and have far-reaching evolutionary implications. Expand
Dual targeting to mitochondria and chloroplasts.
TLDR
The study helps throw some light on the factors determining organelle targeting specificity, and suggests that dual-targeted proteins may well be far more common than once thought. Expand
Origins of hydrogenosomes and mitochondria: evolution and organelle biogenesis.
It is becoming increasingly evident that all eukaryotes characterized to date bear some mitochondrial trait, whether it be a 'real' mitochondrion, a hydrogenosome, a mitosome or a few genes leftExpand
The endosymbiotic origin of the protein import machinery of chloroplastic envelope membranes.
TLDR
The relatively high sequence variability between chloroplastic and Synechocystis proteins suggests that the ancestral proteins had different physiological roles and were modified significantly to fulfill the new demand of importing proteins into the evolving chloroplast. Expand
Mitochondria and hydrogenosomes are two forms of the same fundamental organelle.
TLDR
It seems possible that all eukaryotes may eventually be shown to contain an organelle of mitochondrial ancestry, to which different types of biochemistry can be targeted. Expand
