  • Two new hypotheses explain the initial relationship between the alpha-proteobacterial ancestor (1, 2) of the mitochondrion (the proto-mitochondrion) and its host, one in which the proto-mitochondrion would have been an oxygen scavenger (3) and the other in which it would have been a hydrogenproducing, facultatively anaerobic species (4). Previous studies on the proto-mitochondrion’s metabolism have been based on 50 yeast mitochondrial proteins of alpha-proteobacterial origin (5). To also detect… CONTINUE READING
