New point for functional relaxation of yeast mitochondria after the whole genome duplication
Two major processes generate cellular energy in eukaryotic organisms: fermentation, which occurs anaerobically, and respiration, which requires oxygen and function in mitochondria production about 80% of the energy needed by most eukaryotic organisms. Therefore mitochondrion is called as the power house of eukaryotes. Many mutants of relative genes function in this organelle would generate impo... more
