Higher plant mitochondria are dynamic, pleomorphic organelles. The higher plant chondriome (all mitochondria in a cell collectively) is typically composed of numerous, physically discrete, mitochondria. However, frequent inter-mitochondrial fusion, enabling the mixing and recombination of mtDNA, ensures that the higher plant chondriome functions, at least genetically, as a discontinuous whole. Nothing is known about the genes controlling mitochondrial fusion in plants; there are no plant… CONTINUE READING
