Brief description In addition to their central role in metabolism, plant mitochondria have emerged as important hubs for both sensing and responding to a variety of stimuli. However, as yet there are still many unanswered basic questions about how mitochondria are built in plant cells. This project aims to characterise two novel protein import/assembly pathways, specifically, the newly identified twin-arginine translocation (Tat) protein assembly pathway, and the disulphide relay system of the mitochondrial intermembrane space which displays unique characteristics compared to other systems. A mechanistic understanding of these pathways can be used to design novel strategies to alter plant growth and performance.
