Striatal neurons are vulnerable to Huntington's disease (HD). Decreased levels of acetylated alpha-tubulin and impaired mitochondrial dynamics, such as reduced motility and excessive fission, are associated with HD; however, it remains unclear whether and how these factors might contribute to th...
The human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, takes up numerous host cytosolic components and exogenous nutrients through endocytosis during the intra-erythrocytic stages. Eps15 homology domain-containing proteins (EHDs) are conserved NTPases, which are implicated in membrane remodeling and...
Fe65 is a highly conserved adaptor protein that interacts with several binding partners. Fe65 binds proteins to mediate various cellular processes. But the interacting partner and the regulatory mechanisms controlled by Fe65 are largely unknown. In this study, we found that Fe65 interacts with t...
Mitochondria are multifunctional organelles that play a central role in cellular homeostasis. Severe mitochondrial dysfunction leads to life-threatening diseases in humans and accelerates the aging process. Surprisingly, moderate reduction of mitochondrial function in different species has anti-...
Mitochondria represent the major bioenergetic hub coordinating cellular and organismal homeostasis. The underlying causes of many pathologies tormenting humans converge on impaired mitochondrial maintenance. Mitochondria-specific autophagy (mitophagy), a cellular catabolic process targeting mito...
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the elderly of industrialized nations, and there is increasing evidence to support a role for chronic inflammation in its pathogenesis. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) has been recently reported to be pro-inflamma...
The accumulation of oxidised proteins in ageing cells and tissues results from an increase in oxidant damage coupled with impaired degradation of the damaged proteins. Heat Shock Proteins (HSP) and other chaperones are required to recognise damaged proteins and transport them to the lysosomal an...
The construction of efficient cell factories for the production of metabolites requires the rational improvement/engineering of the metabolism of microorganisms. The subject of this paper is directed towards the quantitative understanding of the respiratory/fermentative Kluyveromyces lactis yeas...
