Mitochondrial Genes and their Expression in Higher Plants
Many of the major changes which occur during growth and differentiation of higher plants are associated with, or dependent upon, marked changes in mitochondrial number, structure and activity. However, very little is known about either the genes which code for mitochondrial proteins, nor the environmental, physiological and genetic factors which regulate mitochondrial biogenesis and coordinate it with development of the plant cell.
