Mitochondria

ID #1853

When a mitochondria proliferates, are the most important elements the ori, Tom and Tim? Or is it just the ori because it would only replicate the 13 genes that it has inside the mitochondria?


I don't think I'd know how to "rank" the importance of the components of a mitochondria. If any of it is missing, little or no ATP gets made, making it essentially useless to the cell, so it seems that it's all important.
