Signaling and Mitochondria
This presentation is now available to view on-demand
Recent years have witnessed a growing excitement in the field of mitochondrial biology with a dramatic increase in our appreciation of the diversity and complexity of mitochondrial function. Rather than simply acting as isolated energy-generating organelles, as once thought, we now know that these organelles form a dynamic network that is subject to continuous remodeling and is integrated into cellular signaling pathways.
This webinar will focus on recent developments in signaling at mitochondria, specifically the role of oxidative stress signalling in metabolism, the regulation of mitochondrial calcium dynamics, and the contribution of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in modulating mitochondrial dynamics. By examining the role of these regulatory pathways in the context of mitochondrial function, we will be highlighting some emerging themes in mitochondrial signaling. We hope that you will join us for the chance to hear from Toren Finkel, Kevin Foskett, and Allan Weissman.
