Mammalian cells contain two genomes, localized in distinct cellular compartments, expressed by two separate translation systems. The nuclear genome encodes all of the genes required for cellular function, while the compact mitochondrial genome encodes several proteins essential to the energetic capacity of this organelle. The work presented in this thesis provides important insights into several mechanisms regulating mitochondrial and cytosolic translation, the coordination between these two systems, and how defects at protein synthesis can lead to disease.
