Latest Mitochondrial disease Stories
Finds that cells without mitochondrial fusion have less mtDNA, more mutations in their mtDNA, and less ability to tolerate those mutations.
Embryos containing genetic material from a man and two women have been produced in a project that researchers are hailing as a â€œray of hopeâ€ for thousands of families troubled by rare genetic diseases that can lead to heart failure, blindness, diabetes and even infant mortality.
OMAHA, Neb., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Transgenomic, Inc.
Soon you could be genetically screened for mitochondrial disorders quickly and comprehensively.
WOBURN, Mass., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. researchers using CRi's Oosight(TM) imaging system have developed a gene transfer technique that has potential to prevent inherited diseases passed on from mothers to their children through mutated DNA in cell mitochondria.
Researchers believe they have found a way to avoid certain genetically inherited disorders through a special kind of in vitro fertilization (IVF).
The normal aging process has long been linked to problems with cell respiration, the process through which the cells extract energy from nutrients
Mitochondrial diseases disrupt the power generating machinery within cells and increase a person's susceptibility to bacterial infection, particularly in the lungs or respiratory tract.
