MITOCHONDRIA CONNECTION WITH CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH (CMT) DISEASE: Problems with energy production and mitochondria, the powerhouses of cells, may be the underlying cause of an X-linked form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) called CMTX6 , a study in patient-derived motor neurons suggests. The study, “ Energy metabolism and mitochondrial defects in X-linked Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMTX6) iPSC-derived motor neurons with […]
