Mammalian mitochondria contain a small circular genome. Majority of mitochondrial proteins are encoded in nuclear genome, translated in the cytosol and imported into mitochondria. In addition, some nucleus-encoded non-coding RNAs are also imported into mitochondria. Our research has shown that degradation of mitochondrial RNAs and mitochondrial DNA requires coordination of multiple organelles and is involved in coregulation of cellular processes in and out of mitochondria. We also discovered a new role of non-coding RNAs as signaling molecules for communication between mitochondria and other cellular compartments.
