QSB Seminar Series 291 (1/27/17)

Mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with many pathologies including cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular disease, and mitochondrial diseases. However, in many cases, the distinct mechanisms by which mitochondrial dysfunction promotes these diseases remain unknown, and up to 20% of the mitochondrial proteome remains functionally uncharacterized. We screened ~1,000 mitochondrial proteins for their contributions to maintaining cellular energy homeostasis, and identified a mitochondrial adenylate kinase which significantly regulates ATP levels, AMPK/mTOR signaling, and cellular redox homeostasis.
