A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Nuclear (nDNA) and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) communication is essential for cell function, but it remains unclear whether the replication of these genomes is linked. We inspected human cells with a novel fluorescence in situ hybridization protocol (mitochondrial Transcription and Replication Imaging Protocol) that identifies mitochondrial structures engaged in initiation of mtDNA replication and unique transcript profiles, and reconstruct the temporal series of mitochondrial and nuclear events in single cells during the cell cycle. We show that mtDNA transcription and initiation of replication are prevalently coordinated with the cell cycle, preceding nuclear DNA synthesis, and being reactivated towards the end of S-phase. This coordination is achieved by modulating the fraction of mitochondrial structures that intiate mtDNA synthesis and/or contain transcript at a given time. Thus, although replication of the mitochondrial genome is active through the entire cell cycle, but in a limited fraction of mitochondrial structures, peaks of these activities are synchronized with nDNA synthesis. After release from blockage of mtDNA replication with either nocodazole or double thymidine treatment, prevalent mtDNA and nDNA synthesis occurred simultaneously, indicating that mitochondrial coordination with the nuclear phase can be adjusted in response to physiological alterations. These findings will help redefine other nuclear-mitochondrial links in cell function.
