Definitions of EXTRANUCLEAR INHERITANCE
Sort: Oldest first
Vertical transmission of hereditary characters by DNA from cytoplasmic organelles such as MITOCHONDRIA ; CHLOROPLASTS; and PLASTIDS or from intracellular parasites such as viruses and plasmids. Mitochondrial inheritance is often referred to as maternal inheritance but should be differentiated from maternal inheritance that is transmitted chromosomally.
