Title: Sorting mtDNA Species-the Role of nDNA-mtDNA Co-evolution.

Authors: Moraes, Carlos T

Published In Cell Metab, (2019 12 03)

Abstract: The segregation of heteroplasmic mtDNA species was thought to be mostly stochastic. However, recent findings, including a study by Latorre-Pellicer et al. (2019) published in this issue of Cell Metabolism, provide evidence that nuclear DNA and mitochondrial DNA interactions play an important role in the sorting process.
