Mitochondrial genes and cell heredity

  • 26 Accesses

  • 1 Citations

Summary

It is well known that mitochondria are only partly an autonomous system since they are subjected to nuclear control. For this reason, in studying mitochondrial genes one has to consider constantly the integration of mitochondrial and nuclear genetic systems. This fact makes experimental approaches still more sophisticated, especially, when one turns from individual genetic structures to mitochondrial heredity on the level of cells and multicellular organisms. Here we shall discuss some theoretical aspects of mitochondrial heredity that have been comparatively rarely dealt with in the literature.
