Retrograde Signaling

Mitochondria and chloroplasts originate from free-living prokaryotes. During their evolution into organelles with central functions in eukaryotic cells, they have transferred the vast majority of their genetic information to the nucleus, so that organellar genomes encode only a small fraction of the organellar proteome. Given this genetic situation, the expression of nuclear-encoded organellar proteins requires signalling of the organellar state to the nucleus or to other components that control the expression of organellar genes. This signalling, summarized under the term retrograde signalling, has received increasing attention in recent years and this collection will cover all aspects of the transfer of information from organelles to the nucleus or cytosol in relation to the regulation of organellar activities.
