Researchers have discovered that the powerhouses of our cells, the mitochondria, also play a role in triggering cells to enter senescence, a dormant state in which cells cease to divide and begin to shut down, ready to die. Mitochondria trigger cytoplasmic chromatin and inflammation The new study shows that the mitochondria in each cell communicate...

Mitochondria provide our cells with the energy they need to function, and they become increasingly dysfunctional as we age. A new study suggests that mitochondrial rejuvenation in the context of restoring healthy blood flow and neurovascular health might be possible with the popular supplement NMN. Rejuvenation of aged mitochondria The mitochondria are the power stations...

Researchers from SENS Research Foundation, including Matthew O'Connor and Amutha Boominathan, have published a new study showing how codons play an important role in getting copies of mitochondrial genes placed in the cellular nucleus to express themselves correctly [1]. A possible solution to mitochondrial diseases Mitochondrial disease is not a single disease; in fact, it...

The mitochondria are well known as being the powerhouses of the cell, as they convert nutrients into the energy that our cells need in order to function and remain alive. Until recently, it was believed that they remain within our cells all their lives, but a new discovery by researchers at the Montpellier Cancer Research...
