报告摘要:

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.
