Soon you could be genetically screened for mitochondrial disorders quickly and comprehensively.
Flies fed an "anti-Atkins" low protein diet live longer because their mitochondria function better.
Researchers are delving into abnormal gene function in mitochondria, structures within cells that power our lives.
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Researchers are delving into abnormal gene function in mitochondria, structures within cells that power our lives. Mitochondria are the place where energy is generated from the most basic molecules of food.
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
Gene mutations that once helped humans evolve and survive could increase the risk of cancer and other diseases today, researchers in Israel said. The mutations were found in the genome of the mitochondria, the part of cells responsible for energy production that is passed from mother to child, scientists at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev said. Although mitochondria's role in the emergence of new species has been investigated recently, the idea that they are responsible for our...
