New fly model related to mitochondrial diseases

Holmbeck MA, Donner JR, Villa-Cuesta E, Rand DM. A Drosophila model for mito-nuclear diseases generated by an incompatible tRNA-tRNA synthetase interaction. Dis Model Mech. 2015 May 5. pii: dmm.019323. PMID: 26035388.

From the abstract: "... Because mutations in mitochondrial tRNATyr are associated with exercise intolerance in humans, this mitochondrial-nuclear introgression model in Drosophila provides a means to dissect the molecular basis of these, and other mitochondrial diseases that are a consequence of the joint genetic architecture of mitochondrial function."
