Fig 1 - Chloroplast-mitochondria cross-talk in diatoms

Fig. 1. Schematic representation of the secondary endosymbiont hypothesis of diatom evolution. The upper panel shows the conventional primary endosymbiosis at the origin of green and red algae and Glaucophytes. By contrast, diatoms are now believed to be derived from a serial secondary endosymbiosis (lower panel) in which a heterotrophic host cell (exosymbiont) combined first with a green alga and subsequently with a red alga (Moustafa et al., 2009). EGT, endosymbiotic gene transfer.
