In vivo Mitophagy Monitoring in Caenorhabditis elegans to Determine Mitochondrial Homeostasis
Authors:  Konstantinos Palikaras and Nektarios Tavernarakis, date: 04/05/2017, view: 1374, Q&A: 0
Perturbation of mitochondrial function is a major hallmark of several pathological conditions and ageing, underlining the essential role of fine-tuned mitochondrial activity (Lopez-Otin et al., 2013). Mitochondrial selective autophagy, ...
Measuring Oxygen Consumption Rate in Caenorhabditis elegans
Authors:  Konstantinos Palikaras and Nektarios Tavernarakis, date: 12/05/2016, view: 2388, Q&A: 0
The rate of oxygen consumption is a vital marker indicating cellular function during lifetime under normal or metabolically challenged conditions. It is used broadly to study mitochondrial function (Artal-Sanz and Tavernarakis, 2009; Palikaras et al ...
