Using 1H-NMR based metabolomics to investigate the pathological consequences of mitochondrial disease and human rabies infectionDownload
Mitochondrial diseases encompass a wide range of clinical phenotypes. The etiology of these disorders is extremely complex; mitochondria are central to energy metabolism and dysfunction can have a profound effect on global metabolism. The original objective of this thesis was to use 1H-NMR based...
Abstract: Translocation of nuclear-encoded preproteins across the outer membrane of mitochondria is mediated by the multicomponent transmembrane TOM complex. We have isolated the TOM core complex of Neurospora crassa by removing the receptors Tom70 and Tom20 from the isolated TOM holo complex by...
The Oxa2 protein of Neurospora crassa plays a critical role in the biogenesis of cytochrome oxidase and defines a ubiquitous subbranch of the Oxa1/YidC/Alb3 protein familyDownload
Proteins of the Oxa1/YidC/Alb3 family mediate the insertion of proteins into membranes of mitochondria, bacteria, and chloroplasts. Here we report the identification of a second gene of the Oxa1/YidC/Alb3 family in the genome of Neurospora crassa, which we have named oxa2. Its gene product, Oxa2,...
Mitochondria are at the center of cardiac health and disease. These vital organelles provide most of the energy to the contractile apparatus and play a strategic role in cardiomyocyte survival during cellular stress. Cardiovascular diseases and many aging related diseases are often associated...
Regulation of Pancreatic β-cell Life and Death in the Context of Type 2 Diabetes: Study of the Potential Implication of the Orphan Nuclear Receptor NR4A3/Nor1 and the NZF Transcription Factor ST18.Download
Background: The insulin-secreting pancreatic beta-cell plays a central role in the maintenance of glucose homeostasis and in the pathogenesis of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus. In both cases, production of pro-inflammatory cytokines causes beta-cell apoptosis, which results in the...
This project investigated the effects of exercise and epinephrine on the mRNA expression of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma coactivator-1 alpha (PGC-1 alpha), a master regulator of mitochondrial biogenesis, in rat adipose tissue. Rats that swam 2 hours daily for 4 weeks had...
Glomus cells of the carotid body are peripheral chemoreceptors that detect changes in arterial oxygen levels. Hypoxia suppresses oxygen-sensitive K+ channels in glomus cells, resulting in cytosolic [Ca2+] ([Ca2+]i) elevation in glomus cells via the activation of voltage-gated Ca2+ channels. The...
Almost all mammalian cells contain energy-producing organelles called mitochondria. Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) is a phospholipid which has been implicated to be important for mitochondrial function. The majority of mitochondrial PE is synthesized in mitochondria using the phosphatidylserine...
