Cells stressed out? Make mitochondria longer

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered a new pathway in cells that promotes mitochondrial function during times of stress, a response that can guard against disease as we age.

New insights into mitochondrial nucleoid dynamics

Mitochondria are important cellular structures that are vital for their role in generating energy. Mitochondria are dynamic, meaning they constantly fuse together and split apart. They contain a small amount of genetic information ...

Scientists identify protein at death's door of cells

A protein embedded in the surface of mitochondria - the energy-producing batteries of living cells - opens the door to cell death, causing cells to experience severe power failures, according to new work by researchers at ...
