    • Abstract


      Mitochondrial transcription has been studied as a function of mitochondriogenesis in yeast cells. Two systems have been used: synchronously growing cells and cells subjected to glucose repression followed by derepression. Maximal RNA synthesis has been found in the S phase of the cell cycle and during the ‘repressed’ phase in asynchronous cells. Activities of RNA polymerase, poly A polymerase and incorporation of [32P]-into RNAin vitro are maximal at the same period. Gel analysis reveals the presence of some high molecular weight RNA species which are likely to be precursors. When chase experiments are carried out in the presence of excess glucose, the high molecular weight species remain unaffected, suggesting that RNA processing may be an important site of action of glucose repression

      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
