Abstract The myzozoa encompasses quite disparate protists, like the infamous apicomplexan parasites, or the famous dinoflagellate phytoplankton. Collectively, myzozoans display a wide diversity of plastids; they all most likely descended from a common myzozoan plastid ancestor. Some myzozoan plastids are photosynthetic whereas others are not; some have plastid genomes (plastomes) but others have lost them. The only two eukaryotes known to have lost plastids altogether are myzozoans. In this chap...

Summary The MICOS complex is conserved across eukaryotes, but little is known about it outside the group that comprises animals and fungi. A new study finds that mitochondria of trypanosomatid parasites bear a divergent MICOS with both ancestral and derived subunits, but with conserved functions in crista development and membrane contact-site formation.

Summary Red algal plastid genomes are often considered ancestral and evolutionarily stable, and thus more closely resembling the last common ancestral plastid genome of all photosynthetic eukaryotes [1, 2]. However, sampling of red algal diversity is still quite limited (e.g., [2–5]). We aimed to remedy this problem. To this end, we sequenced six new plastid genomes from four undersampled and phylogenetically disparate red algal classes (Porphyridiophyceae, Stylonematophyceae, Compsopogonophycea...

Summary Mitochondria are best known for their role in the generation of ATP by aerobic respiration. Yet, research in the past half century has shown that they perform a much larger suite of functions and that these functions can vary substantially among diverse eukaryotic lineages. Despite this diversity, all mitochondria derive from a common ancestral organelle that originated from the integration of an endosymbiotic alphaproteobacterium into a host cell related to Asgard Archaea. The transitio...

Abstract The ER–mitochondria organizing network (ERMIONE) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is involved in maintaining mitochondrial morphology and lipid homeostasis. ERMES and MICOS are two scaffolding complexes of ERMIONE that contribute to these processes. ERMES is ancient but has been lost in several lineages including animals, plants, and SAR (stramenopiles, alveolates and rhizaria). On the other hand, MICOS is ancient and has remained present in all organisms bearing mitochondrial cristae. The E...
