European mistletoe (Viscum album) is a hemiparasitic flowering plant that is known for its very special
life cycle and extraordinary biochemical properties. Particularly, V. album has an unusual mode of
cellular respiration that takes place in the absence of mitochondrial complex I.
Arabidopsis thaliana is an annual (rarely biennial) plant, usually growing to 20–25 cm tall. The leaves
form a rosette at the base of the plant, with a few leaves also on the flowering stem.
A. thaliana can complete its entire lifecycle in six weeks. The central stem that produces flowers grows
after about 3 weeks, and the flowers naturally self-pollinate. In the lab, A. thaliana may be grown in
Petri plates, pots, or hydroponics, under fluorescent lights or in a greenhouse.
