Inhibition of the Drp1 mitochondrial fission protein shows potential as a treatment for Parkinson's disease.
A new study reports researchers have created a new framework for protein aggregation under acute stress.
Researchers report finding greater rates of mitochondrial mutations in the offspring of older mothers, as well as the mothers themselves.
Some retinal nerve cells shed mitochondria so that neighboring astrocytes can break them down.
Researchers use RNAi to reveal dozens of genes which could represent new therapeutic targets for treating Parkinson's disease.
Rapamycin, a transplant anti-rejection drug, enhances survival and reduces the disease progression in a mouse model of Leigh's syndrome, a new study reports.
Researchers have identified how the circadian clock helps prime mitochondria to correctly use stored energy when we are not eating.
Researchers have captured the structural dynamics of the mitochondrion using fluorescent probes. This mapping could provide insights into the underlying causes of neurodegeneration associated with mitochondrial malfunction.
Researchers have identified a molecular program which spurs the growth of neuronal output connections.
