Abstract

This review attempts to summarize our present state of knowledge of mitochondria in relation to a number of areas of biology, and to indicate where future research might be directed. In the evolution of eukaryotic cells mitochondria have for a long time played a prominent role. Nowadays their integration into many activities of a cell, and their dynamic behavior as subcellular organelles within a cell and during cell division are a major focus of attention. The crystal structures of the major complexes of the electron transport chain (except complex I) have been established, permitting increasingly detailed analyses of the important mechanism of proton pumping coupled to electron transport. The mitochondrial genome and its replication and expression are beginning to be understood in considerable detail, but more questions remain with regard to mutations and their repair, and the segregation of the mtDNA in oogenesis and development. Much emphasis and a large effort have recently been devoted to understand the role of mitochondria in programmed cell death (apoptosis). The understanding of their central role in mitochondrial diseases is a major achievement of the past decade. Finally, various drugs have traditionally played a part in understanding biochemical mechanisms within mitochondria; the repertoire of drugs with novel and interesting targets is expanding.
