Mitochondrial Dynamics and Neurodegeneration by Bingwei Lu

By Bingwei Lu

Mitochondria are crucial organelles in eukaryotic cells that regulate such varied techniques as strength metabolism, calcium buffering, and mobilephone demise. fresh reviews have printed that adjustments in mitochondrial morphology through fission and fusion, a technique often called mitochondrial dynamics, is very vital for neuronal functionality and survival. Defects during this approach are regularly present in neurodegenerative illnesses, providing a brand new paradigm for investigating mechanisms of neurodegeneration. to supply researchers engaged on neurodegenerative illnesses and mitochondria with up-to-date details in this speedily progressing box, now we have invited specialists within the box to significantly overview contemporary progresses and determine destiny examine instructions. the themes comprise genetics of mitochondrial dynamics, mitochondrial dynamics and bioenergetics, autophagy, apoptosis, and axonal shipping, and its function in neurological illnesses, together with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s diseases.
