Ed. by David C. Logan.
Annual plant reviews; v.31
Logan (biology, U. of St. Andrews, Fife, UK) assembles 10 chapters that review recent advances in the study of plant mitochondria for plant scientists, cell and molecular biologists, and biochemists. Scientists and researchers from Europe, the US, and Australia show the complex biology of plant mitochondria from a cell biological, biochemical, and molecular biological perspective. They describe the emerging field of plant mitochondrial dynamics; the dynamic mitochondrial genome, including expression and control; the sequence and structural determinants for protein import; the interplay between nuclear and mitochondrial gene expression; electron transport; metabolism; cytoplasmic male sterility; and plant programmed cell death.
