  • The bacteria-like EM images of mitochondria that we know from textbooks are really cross-sections of tubules and a closer look reveals connections between the endomembrane system and mitochondria.

    A critique on the endosymbiotic theory for the origin of mitochondria

  • In an autogenic origin, mitochondria are evolutionary derived from the eukaryotic endomembrane system.

    A critique on the endosymbiotic theory for the origin of mitochondria

  • The prokaryotes that evolved into mitochondria introduced roughly 3,000 new protein families, permitting the development of such complex processes as multicellularity, endomembrane trafficking, and even sexual reproduction.

  • In eukaryotes, the endomembrane system is a network of membrane-bound compartments which stores and transports material within the cell.

  • In the new study, researchers in the group of Iain Mattaj, Director General of EMBL, are the first to provide molecular evidence that the coat proteins that shape the eukaryotic endomembrane system also exist in prokaryotes.

  • Scientists believed that membrane-bound compartments were unique to eukaryotic cells, and that membrane-coat proteins, which have a unique architecture and are associated with the endomembrane system, existed only in eukaryotes.

  • "Our findings provide unexpected clues as to how the endomembrane system of eukaryotes evolved," says Damien Devos, who led the study, "and since they are relatively simple cells, these bacteria could be used as model organisms for studying how this system works."

  • In eukaryotic cells, directional transport between different compartments of the endomembrane system is mediated by vesicles that bud from a donor organelle and then fuse with an acceptor organelle.

  • Moreover, since different SNARE family members are thought to demarcate different organelles and vesicles, this approach allowed us to compare the organization of the endomembrane systems of yeast and animal cells.
