Mitochondria have paradoxical functions within cells. Essential providers of energy for cellular survival, they are also harbingers of cell death (apoptosis). Mitochondria exhibit remarkable dynamics, undergoing fission, fusion, and reticular expansion. Both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) encode vital sets of proteins which, when incorporated into the inner mitochondrial membrane, provide electron transport capacity for ATP production, and when mutated lead to a broad spectrum of… CONTINUE READING
