discoideum’s mitochondria carry their own genome that encodes RNAs and proteins for mitochondrial ribosomes as well as proteins for energy production

As in all eukaryotes, D. discoideum’s mitochondria have their possess genome that encodes RNAs and proteins for mitochondrial ribosomes as properly as proteins for power creation [23]. In D. discoideum, disruption of the huge subunit ribosomal RNA in a subpopulation of mitochondria outcomes in faulty chemotaxis and phototaxis, but not irregular mobile expansion [24]. Intriguingly,…
