  1. 1. Molecular mechanisms for transcription in mammalian mitochondria

    Author : Martina Gaspari; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : mitochondria; oxidative phosphorylation; mtDNA; transcription; TFAM; TFB1M TFB2M; POLRMT; promoter recognition; CSB II;

    Abstract : The circular double stranded mitochondrial genome (mtDNA), which is about 16,600 bp in humans and 16,300 bp in mice, encodes 13 of the -90 different proteins present in the respiratory chain of mammalian mitochondria. The remaining components of the respiratory chain are encoded by nuclear genes and imported into the mitochondrial network. READ MORE

  2. 2. Structural-functional studies of mitochondrial matrix proteins

    Author : Saba Shahzad; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Mitochondria;

    Abstract : The mitochondrion is the powerhouse of the eukaryotic cell. Most of the energy required to carry out cellular processes is generated inside mitochondria via the process of oxidative phosphorylation. The machinery required for oxidative phosphorylation is encoded by both the nuclear and the mitochondrial genome. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular insights into mitochondrial DNA replication

    Author : Javier Miralles Fusté; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Mitochondria are organelles found in eukaryotic cells. These organelles produce most of the adenosine triphosphate that cells use as a source of energy. Mitochondria contain their own genomic material, a circular DNA genome (mtDNA) that encodes subunits of the respiratory chain complexes and RNA components needed for mitochondrial translation.

  4. 4. Initiation of Mammalian Mitochondrial DNA Replication

    Author : Elisabeth Jemt; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mitochondria; mtDNA; DNA replication;

    Abstract : Mitochondria produce most of the adenosine triphosphate required in a eukaryotic cell and they contain their own genome. The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is a double stranded circular molecule that codes for proteins required for cellular respiration and RNA molecules involved in translation of these proteins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Linking transcription to DNA replication in mammalian mitochondria

    Author : Yonghong Shi; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Most of the adenosine phosphate (ATP) used to drive cellular processes is produced through oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS). At the heart of this process is the electron transport chain, which contains a number of protein complexes located in the inner membrane of mitochondria. READ MORE
