Mitochondria are present in all eukaryotes, but remodeling of their metabolic contribution has in some cases left them almost unrecognizable and they are referred to as mitochondria-like organelles, hydrogenosomes or, in the case where evolution has led to a great deal of simplification, as mitosomes. Mitochondria rely on the import of proteins encoded in the nucleus and the protein import machinery has been investigated in detail in yeast: several sophisticated molecular machines act in… CONTINUE READING
