Though the causes of this persistence in mango mitosis is not clear, it was assumed to be associated with (a) the allopolyploid nature of mango; (b) disturbance in the biosynthesis of some nucleolar component which stimulated the persistence; (c) disturbance in some pathway related to nucleolar disassembly; (d) failure in the phosphorilation machinery at RNA pol I, as mentioned before; and (e) requirement of some nucleolar proteins to the mango cell cycle progression compelling its persistence.
Together, these studies suggest that alterations in the ETC within the mitochondria may be associated with a shift from oxidative phosphorilation to anaerobic glycolysis in BD.
