“Fuzzy Synapse” is a platform to simplify complex scientific ideas and concepts in fun and easy way with a pinch of humour.
Next in the Fuzzy Synapse mitochondrial #moods series is about mitochondrial DNA!
It’s amazing and unique that mitochondria carry its own genetic material, independent from that in the cell nucleus. It is genetically compact, circular, and double stranded DNA molecule which contains genes that are essential for its function like generating energy molecules (ATP) through oxidative phosphorylation process.
Chilling is in their DNA!
