What are reduced mitochondria for?

A few years ago, scientists discovered a curious case of protozoa (oxymonads) that do not have mitochondria. Since then, the research group of Associate Professor Hampl from the Faculty of Science of Charles University and the BIOCEV research centre has been asking how the unique loss of mitochondria occurred. In a paper, which has just been published in the prestigious journal Current Biology, Associate Professor Hampl's team with Justyna Zítek as the first author used the closest known relative of the oxymonads, a free living flagellate Paratrimastix pyriformis, as a model species.

Small mountain lake opens a window to the past

The team centered around Associate Professor Petr Kuneš from the Faculty of Science of the Charles University in Prague has been researching the prehistory of Bohemian Forest (Šumava) lakes for seven years. The sediments collected have been unravelling new stories and now part of the results have been published in a prestigious journal Science of the Total Environment. The unusual quality of the record from a small mountain lake (Prášilské jezero) has made it possible to reconstruct changes in the lake ecosystem in great detail, revealing processes associated with the brownification of the water that go beyond the scope of a local study.
