    • Abstract


      A DNA polymerase activity associated with the detergent insoluble cytoskeletal fraction has been identified in dividing and non-dividing rat hepatocytes and a hepatoma (the Zajdela Ascitic Hepatoma). About 35 % of the enzyme is found associated with the cytoskeletal fraction of non-dividing cells as compared to about 3–6 % of the enzyme in dividing cells even though the dividing cells contain larger amounts of the extranuclear enzyme. The properties of the enzyme are similar to those of DNA polymerase-v. It is suggested that the association of the enzyme with the cytoskeletal fraction has functional significance.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
