Researchers Dr Monika Murcha;
Brief description The overall aim of this project is to identify and characterise the underlying regulatory factors that control mitochondrial mass and number in plants. The project will exploit a regulatory mechanism that links the mitochondrial import machinery and the respiratory chain. Utilising both forward and reverse genetic approaches, the abundances of protein import translocases will be altered and the changes to mitochondrial biogenesis will be investigated. This will identify regulatory factors, which can be manipulated and used to alter mitochondrial number and activity.
