About this book

The 2 main themes running through the book are the interconnection between gene regulation and protein function, and the integration of mitochondria with other components of plant cells. The book begins with an overview of the dynamics of mitochondrial structure, morphology and inheritance. It then discusses the biogenesis of mitochondria, the regulation of gene expression, the mitochondrial genome and its interaction with the nucleus, and the targeting of proteins to the organelle. Also covered are the pathways of electron transport, with special attention to the non phosphorylating bypasses, metabolite transport, and specialized mitochondrial metabolism. Finally, the impact of oxidative stress on mitochondria and the defense mechanisms, that are employed to allow survival, are discussed.
