The Composition of Plant Mitochondrial Supercomplexes Changes with Oxygen Availability

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Background: Respiratory supercomplexes are known to exist, but their function remains to be revealed. Results: Plant supercomplexes are affected by hypoxia and a concomitant drop in pH. Conclusion: Respiratory supercomplexes are dynamic structures that are affected by the intracellular environment. Significance: Supercomplexes could have a regulatory function in guiding electrons through alternative respiratory pathways.
