Mitochondria are affected by low temperature during seedling establishment in maize (Zea mays L.). We evaluated the associated changes in the mitochondrial properties of populations selected for high (C4-H) and low (C4-L) germination levels at 9.5 degreesC. When seedlings of the two populations were grown at 14 degreesC (near the lower growth limit), the mitochondrial inner membranes of C4-H showed a higher percentage of 18-carbon unsaturated fatty acids, a higher fluidity, and a higher… CONTINUE READING
