THE small bacteria-like structures which may be demonstrated in the cytoplasm of all organized cells and which have come to be known as mitochondria have been recognized by biologists although their nature remains obscure. The discovery of these structures may justly be credited to Altmann (1) who believed that they are microorganisms and represent the ultimate units of life embedded in a lifeless cytoplasm 'of the host cell. Among others, Biitschli and Safftigen upheld a view that these… Expand
ON THE PRESENT POSITION OF THE MITO‐CHONDRIA AND THE GOLGI APPARATUS
TLDR
An attempt has been made in this review to discuss the mitochondria and the Golgi apparatus from as many aspects as possible except the changes which they undergo under pathological conditions. Expand
A study of the cytoplasm in insect ova
TLDR
The cytoplasm of the ova of ten species of insects has been studied and the Golgi bodies and chondriosomes are interpreted as substances rather than structures and as intermediate products of metabolism. Expand
Mitochondria, Hydrogenosomes and Mitosomes in Relation to the CoRR Hypothesis for Genome Function and Evolution
TLDR
Relict mitochondria can be understood in terms of CoRR – genes in bioenergetic organelles are retained in order to be subject to regulatory control by the redox state of their corresponding gene products. Expand
Microbiota and mitobiota. Putting an equal sign between mitochondria and bacteria
TLDR
The recent revival of old theories and setting them on modern scientific rails to a large extent are also relevant to mitochondrial science, and the processes inherent to mitochondrial physiology can be revised based on their comparative analysis with possible involvement of bacteria. Expand
The Plant Mitochondrial Carrier Family: Functional and Evolutionary Aspects
TLDR
The establishment of different MCF proteins is explained and the characteristics of members from plants are focused on, in particular from Arabidopsis thaliana. Expand

TLDR
The days when research on mitochondrial biogenesis was an exotic effort limited to a small group of outsiders are recounted. Expand
3 – Amazing Mitochondria
TLDR
This chapter explores mitochondria from a number of perspectives: structure, origins, biochemistry, and genetics, which are the key in understanding athletic performance. Expand
The hybrid nature of the Eukaryota and a consilient view of life on Earth
TLDR
It is concluded that cellular life consists of two primary, paraphyletic prokaryotic groups and one secondary, monophyletic group that has symbiogenic origins — the eukaryotes. Expand

TLDR
Identification of regulatory pathways modulating OxPhos activity, by subunit isoform expression, by allosteric interaction with ATP/ADP, by reversible phosphorylation of protein subunits, or by supercomplex formation will help to understand the role of mitochondria in the many degenerative diseases, mostly based on ROS formation in mitochondria and/or insufficient energy production.

Implications of mutation of organelle genomes for organelle function and evolution.

TLDR
From the available data, even the longest-lived organelle-encoded proteins, and the RNAs needed for their synthesis, are unlikely to maintain organelle function for much more than a week after the complete loss of organelle DNA. Expand
