Regulation of mitochondrial expression (REMIX)

Start date: 01 Oct 2016, End date: 30 Sep 2020,

Mitochondria are essential organelles found in every eukaryotic cell, required to convert food into usable energy. The mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) system, which produces the majority of cellular energy in the form of ATP, is controlled by two distinct genomes: the nuclear and the mitochondrial genome (mtDNA). Mutations in mitochondrial genes encoded by either genome could caus ...

L-form bacteria, biotechnology and disease (ELFBAD)

Start date: 01 Oct 2015, End date: 30 Sep 2020,

Despite the clear importance and multiple functions of the bacterial cell wall, many bacteria appear to be able to switch into a cell wall deficient or “L-form” state. L-forms are very heterogeneous in size and shape and generally require osmotic stabilisers, such as 0.5 M sucrose, for viability.However, by lacking the requirement for a cell wall, L-forms are completely resistant to common cell wa ...
