Mitochondria make functionally relevant contacts with most, if not all, other organelles in the cell. These contacts impact on mitochondrial behavior and function as well as on a wide variety of cellular functions. Many recent advances have been made in the rapidly growing field of mitochondria contact site biology, and these advances have expanded the known functions of mitochondria contact sites in exciting and unexpected ways.
