Dear folks,
        Recently researchers found evidence of mitochondria-like genes in the
nuclear genome of certain amitochondriates that suggest that these
protozoans may have had mitochondria and secondarily lost it, as opposed to
the classical view that they never had it.  Does anyone have a reference
for this/these publication(s)?
        Sincerely,
 
        Andre-D.
