In an exam situation I have been presented with the following question by the teacher:
What are the interactions between the mitochondrial DNA and the cell's nuclear DNA?
To my knowledge there is no such interaction. At the best you could say that the nuclear genome provides the mitochondria with some proteins and vice versa the mitochondria may participate in intrinsic apoptosis by releasing cytochrome C. Unfortunately this answer was not accepted by the teacher and I was not given an explanation. My question is wheter there is an actual interaction I've never heard of or if maybe the poorly worded question was alluding to something else.
