No, I don't think that you can complement mitochondrial DNA mutations
with cen-ars plasmids, which would be in the nucleus.  I am looking
for strains that contain known mutations of mitochondrial DNA (ie.
cox1, atp8) that can be mated with my strain to complement respiratory
defeciency.  ATCC has a few (cox2, cox3, atp6, cob), but I would also
need atp9, cox1, atp8, var1, and possibly others.
