Biogenesis of giant mitochondria during insect flight muscle development in the locust, Locusta migratoria (L.). Transcription, translation and copy number of mitochondrial DNA.


The biogenesis of giant mitochondria in flight muscle of Locusta migratoria (L.) was analyzed at the molecular level. During the 2 weeks between the beginning of the last larval stage and the imago capable of sustained flight, individual mitochondria have been shown to enlarge 30-fold and the fractional mitochondrial volume of muscle cells increases… (More)
