  • 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 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.
