Phylogenetic evidence supports mitochondria being acquired ‘early’ during eukaryogenesis.
Phylogenetic evidence supports mitochondria being acquired ‘late’ during eukaryogenesis.
The Archezoan hypothesis was proven to be false after genes within the proposed “archezoans” were traced back to mitochondrial origins.
The Archezoan hypothesis provides a theory of how eukaryotic cells may have arisen from a lineage that were amitochondriate.
The hydrogen hypothesis speculates that the origin of eukaryogenesis was dependent on conversion to an H2-based metabolism by an endosymbiotic event.
The origin of introns and the nucleus during eukaryogenesis may have been initiated by an endosymbiotic event.
Mitochondria allow the eukaryotic cell to push past an energy threshold that inhibits prokaryotic cells.
