Recent data has shown that mtDNA synthesis precedes endoplasmic reticulum-mediated mitochondrial division (ERMD), suggesting that mtDNA biogenesis plays a role in maintaining mitochondria morphology. ER-mitochondria contact sites may prove to be essential for mtDNA synthesis, and also for lipid and calcium exchange.
