    Origins and functional consequences of somatic mitochondrial DNA mutations in human cancer

    Young Seok Ju et al.
    Identifying 1,907 mitochondrial somatic mutations from 1,675 tumor tissues provides new insights into the causes and effects of the mitochondrial genome mutations found in human cancers.

    Cardiac mitochondrial function depends on BUD23 mediated ribosome programming

    Matthew Baxter et al.
    BUD23 links ribosome function with mitochondrial protein expression and efficient oxidative phosphorylation by promoting selective mRNA translation and is therefore critical to mouse development and postnatal cardiac function.

    Mitochondrial fatty acid synthesis coordinates oxidative metabolism in mammalian mitochondria

    Sara M Nowinski et al.
    Mitochondrial fatty acid synthesis is best known for producing lipoic acid, however, longer acyl chain products regulate mitochondrial electron transport chain assembly, oxidative TCA cycle metabolism, and skeletal myoblast differentiation.

    Maturation of selected human mitochondrial tRNAs requires deadenylation

    Sarah F Pearce et al.
    Removal of spurious poly(A) tails by the PDE12 exoribonuclease is required to maintain the integrity of human mitochondrial tRNAs and rRNAs and their availability for efficient mitochondrial translation.

    Homozygous YME1L1 mutation causes mitochondriopathy with optic atrophy and mitochondrial network fragmentation

    Bianca Hartmann et al.
    Mutations affecting a nuclear encoded metalloprotease cause of a new form of mitochondriopathy, highlighting the importance of this protease for mitochondrial function in humans.

    Transcriptomic and proteomic landscape of mitochondrial dysfunction reveals secondary coenzyme Q deficiency in mammals

    Inge Kühl et al.
    Comparative -omic analyses of five knockout mouse strains with disrupted mitochondrial DNA expression at different levels provide a high quality resource of altered gene expression patterns that reveal several common secondary patophysiological changes of mitochondrial dysfunction.

    MICOS coordinates with respiratory complexes and lipids to establish mitochondrial inner membrane architecture

    Jonathan R Friedman et al.
    A conserved mitochondrial inner membrane complex called MICOS works together with the mitochondrial lipid cardiolipin and respiratory complexes to direct the position, copy number and stabilization of cristae structures for efficient respiration.

    Identification of a novel toxicophore in anti-cancer chemotherapeutics that targets mitochondrial respiratory complex I

    Zoe A Stephenson et al.
    A novel toxicophore, a 1H-1,2,3-triazole, has been identified in a wide-number of therapeutically-relevant compounds, including two anti-cancer chemotherapeutics, which inhibits mitochondria function and is mechanistically linked to adverse cardiac-cell events.

    Reduction of elevated proton leak rejuvenates mitochondria in the aged cardiomyocyte

    Huiliang Zhang et al.
    The primary respiratory defect seen in aged cardiomyocytes is an elevated proton leak mediated by ANT1, and this is prevented by treatment with SS-31 (elamipretide).

    Mitochondrial genetic diversity, selection and recombination in a canine transmissible cancer

    Andrea Strakova et al.
    Genetics of a canine transmissible tumour show how the world’s oldest cancer “metastasised” through the global dog population – and captured, maintained and rearranged its mitochondrial DNA along the way.
