Mitochondria, long known as "cellular power plants" for their generation of the key energy source adenosine triphosphate (ATP), are essential for proper cellular functions. Mitochondrial defects are often observed in a variety of diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease, and are the hallmarks of a number of genetic mitochondrial disorders whose manifestations range from muscle weakness to organ failure. Despite a fairly strong understanding of the pathology of...

The popular belief that "cancer originates due to DNA mutations” is wrong” according to Samil Ozavar, who is the President of GEMM Research Ltd. Malignant transformation actually takes place due to an excessive build up of ATP in the cell that force a premature and uncontrolled cell division. A structural damage to the mitochondrial membrane channels that regulate the ATP flow to the cytosol are responsible for the excessive energy build that may lead to the formation of a...

Researchers at the RIKEN SPring-8 Center in Harima, Japan have clarified the crystal structure of quinol dependent nitric oxide reductase (qNOR), a bacterial enzyme that offers clues on the origins of our earliest oxygen-breathing ancestors. In addition to their importance to fundamental science, the findings provide key insights into the production of nitrogen oxide, an ozone-depleting and greenhouse gas hundreds of times more potent than carbon dioxide. As the central process by which...
