Mitochondrial Dynamics : Shaping Life and Death of the Cell Hardback
Edited by Quan Chen
Part of the Oxidative Stress and Disease series
Mitochondria are among the most important of eukaryotic cell organelles, often referred to as the "powerhouse" of the cell, because of the role they play in providing energy for cellular function.
This book synthesizes what is known mitochondrial dynamics, including the fusion and fission of mitochondria, mitophagy (the destruction of damaged mitochondria), and the role of mitochondrial dynamics in disease such as Parkinson's disease and diabetes--among other topics.
The volume is designed to appeal to molecular biologists, cell physiologists and anyone interested in the role mitochondria play in cell physiological function.
