Cell biology: Maintaining mitochondrial resilience

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Mitochondria cannot autonomously cope with stress and must instead call on the cell for help. Molecular geneticists at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have identified the long-sought signaling pathway which enables the organelles to do so. Mitochondria are membrane-bounded intracellular organelles that supply the energy needed to power the biochemical […]
