Value 2E-05 1/(cell×generation)
Organism Budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Reference Thorsness PE, Fox TD. Escape of DNA from mitochondria to the nucleus in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Nature. 1990 Jul 26 346(6282):376-9 p.377 right column 3rd paragraph and p.378 table 2PubMed ID2165219
Method A yeast strain with mitochondria that contained only sequences derived from a defined plasmid was generated using high velocity microprojectile bombardment.
Comments Movement of DNA in the opposite direction, from nucleus to mitochondria, is apparently at least 100,000 times slower
