BackgroundMitochondria mediate most of the energy production that occurs in the majority of eukaryotic organisms. These subcellular organelles contain a genome that differs from the nuclear genome and is referred to as mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Despite a disparity in gene content, all mtDNAs encode at least two components of the mitochondrial electron transport chain, including cytochrome c oxidase I (Cox1).Presentation of the hypothesisA positionally conserved ORF has been found on the… Expand
[The underestimated coding potential of mitochondrial DNA].
TLDR
The discovery of additional mitochondria-derived peptides (MDPs) indicates an underestimated coding potential for mitochondria, and their investigation will shed light on the underestimated functional repertoire of mitochondria. Expand
Maximum likelihood estimation of the evolutionary distance of complete genomes of mitochondrial DNA between human and 16 animals
TLDR
In human, mitochondrial pathology leads to a massive array of pathologies, and many diseases result from various defects of mitochondrial biogenesis and maintenance, metabolism chain complexes or individual mitochondrial proteins. Expand
Evolutionarily recent, insertional fission of mitochondrial cox2 into complementary genes in bilaterian Metazoa
BackgroundMitochondrial genomes (mtDNA) of multicellular animals (Metazoa) with bilateral symmetry (Bilateria) are compact and usually carry 13 protein-coding genes for subunits of three respiratoryExpand
Animal Mitochondrial DNA as We Do Not Know It: mt-Genome Organization and Evolution in Nonbilaterian Lineages
TLDR
Discovery of newly discovered diversity in animal mitochondrial genome organization allows a better understanding of the evolutionary plasticity and conservation of animal mtDNA and provides insights into the molecular and evolutionary mechanisms shaping mitochondrial genomes. Expand
Coding palindromes in mitochondrial genes of Nematomorpha
TLDR
This work discovered numerous perfect inverted repeats of considerable length embedded within the protein-coding genes in mitochondrial genomes of four Nematomorpha species, finding that the inverted repeat-containing genes are transcribed and translated into functional proteins. Expand
The ribosome as a missing link in the evolution of life.
TLDR
Ribosomal RNA is not just a structural scaffold for proteins, but the vestigial remnant of a primordial genome that may have encoded a self-organizing, self-replicating, auto-catalytic intermediary between macromolecules and cellular life. Expand
AnimalMitochondrialDNAasWeDoNotKnowIt : mt-Genome Organization and Evolution in Nonbilaterian Lineages
Animal mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is commonly described as a small, circular molecule that is conserved in size, gene content, and organization. Data collected in the last decade have challenged thisExpand
Mitochondrial genome evolution in species belonging to the Phialocephala fortinii s.l. - Acephala applanata species complex
TLDR
Analysis of the complete mt genome of P. subalpina shows that mtDNA loci will be the marker of choice for future analysis of PAC communities and Gene order analysis within Pezizomycotina suggests that the evolution of gene orders is mostly driven by transpositions. Expand
A resourceful genome: updating the functional repertoire and evolutionary role of animal mitochondrial DNAs.
TLDR
This review summarizes recent studies on animal species with a non-standard mitochondrial functional repertoire and discusses how these genetic novelties represent promising candidates for studying the role of the mitochondrial genome in speciation. Expand
Triplex DNA: RNA, 3′-to-5′ Inverted RNA and Protein Coding in Mitochondrial Genomes
TLDR
BLAST aligns 18 GenBank-stored proteins with hypothetical proteins translated from the 3'-to-5' inverted Mus musculus mitochondrial genome, and deamination and circular code tests confirm independently alignment-based predictions of overlapping 3-to- 5' protein coding genes. Expand

Genome structure and gene content in protist mitochondrial DNAs.

A review of protist mtDNA sequences determined to date comments on such aspects as mitochondrial genome structure, gene content, ribosomal RNA, introns, transfer RNAs and the genetic code and phylogenetic implications, and illustrates the utility of a comparative genomics approach to gene identification.

Evolution of mitochondrial gene content: gene loss and transfer to the nucleus.
TLDR
All animals, some plants, and certain other groups of eukaryotes are mired in profound stases in mitochondrial gene content, whereas other lineages have experienced relatively frequent gene loss. Expand
The Typically Mitochondrial DNA-encoded ATP6 Subunit of the F1F0-ATPase Is Encoded by a Nuclear Gene in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii *
TLDR
The atp6 gene, encoding the ATP6 subunit of F1F0-ATP synthase, has thus far been found only as an mtDNA-encoded gene but is the first example of a mitochondrial protein with more than two transmembrane stretches, directly involved in proton translocation, that is nucleus- Encoded. Expand
Subunit II of Cytochrome c Oxidase in Chlamydomonad Algae Is a Heterodimer Encoded by Two Independent Nuclear Genes*
TLDR
It is proposed that during the evolution of the Chlorophyte algae, thecox2 gene was divided into two mitochondrial genes that were subsequently transferred to the nucleus and was evolutionarily distinct from the transfer of an intact cox2gene tothe nucleus in some members the Leguminosae plant family.

TLDR
Examination of mitochondrial genomes is producing further insights into the diversity of the wide-ranging group of organisms comprising the general category of parasites, and mitochondrial functions are being recognised as potential drug targets. Expand
A mitochondrial DNA mutation linked to colon cancer results in proton leaks in cytochrome c oxidase
TLDR
An intrinsic proton leak was identified, which would lead to a decreased overall energy-conversion efficiency of the respiratory chain, and would also perturb transport processes such as protein, ion, and metabolite trafficking. Expand
Mitochondrial gene transfer in pieces: fission of the ribosomal protein gene rpl2 and partial or complete gene transfer to the nucleus.
TLDR
It is shown that a severely truncated mitochondrial rpl2 gene was created by the formation of a premature stop codon early in eudicot evolution, and that this event then permitted the nonsense mutation that gave rise to the mitochondrial 5' rPL2 gene. Expand
Evolution of the mitochondrial genome of Metazoa as exemplified by comparison of congeneric species
TLDR
The data reviewed here show that the plasticity of Metazoa mtDNA is higher than previously thought and mainly due to variation in number and location of tRNA genes, and the analysis of congeneric species promises to be a valuable approach for the assessment of the mtDNA evolutionary trend in poorly or not yet sampled metazoan groups.

Repeated, recent and diverse transfers of a mitochondrial gene to the nucleus in flowering plants
TLDR
Rps10 has been transferred to the nucleus at a surprisingly high rate during angiosperm evolution, and the structures of several nuclear rps10 genes reveal diverse mechanisms by which transferred genes become activated, including parasitism of pre-existing nuclear genes for mitochondrial or cytoplasmic proteins, and activation without gain of a mitochondrial targeting sequence.

TLDR
It is shown that both tRNAGln species and a bacterial pre-tRNAAsp can be imported in vitro into mitochondria isolated from myoclonic epilepsy with ragged-red fiber cells if provided with sufficient ATP. Expand
