Mitochondria- Structure and Functions

Mitochondria- Structure and Functions Mitochondria are oxygen-consuming ribbon-shaped cellular organelles of immense importance floating free throughout the cell. They are known as the “powerhouse of the cell” since these organelles supply all the necessary biological energy to the cell by oxidizing the substrates available. The enzymatic oxidation of chemical compounds in the mitochondria release energy.  Since … Read moreMitochondria- Structure and Functions

Isolation of Mitochondria from Plants, Yeast Cells, Mice, Cell Culture

Isolation of Mitochondria from Cell Culture

Isolation of Mitochondria from Plants, Yeast Cells, Mice, Cell Culture Mitochondria are central organelles controlling the life and death of the cell. They participate in key metabolic reactions, synthesize most of the ATP and regulate a number of signaling cascades, including apoptosis. Investigating functional mitochondria that have been isolated from different tissues and from cultured … Read moreIsolation of Mitochondria from Plants, Yeast Cells, Mice, Cell Culture

Extranuclear Inheritance- Cytoplasmic Factors and Types

Extranuclear Inheritance

Extranuclear Inheritance- Cytoplasmic Factors and Types Though, the genes of nuclear chromosomes have a significant and key role in the inheritance of almost all traits from generations to generations, they altogether cannot be considered as the sole vehicles of inheritance. Certain experimental evidences suggest the occurrence of certain extranuclear genes or DNA molecules in the … Read moreExtranuclear Inheritance- Cytoplasmic Factors and Types
