Sorting mtDNA Species—the Role of nDNA-mtDNA Co-evolution

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

The segregation of heteroplasmic mtDNA species was thought to be mostly stochastic. However, recent findings, including a study by Latorre-Pellicer et al. (2019) published in this issue of Cell Metabolism, provide evidence that nuclear DNA and mitochondrial DNA interactions play an important role in the sorting process.
