Mitochondria control of physiology and disease: beyond ATP
Air date: Wednesday, March 7, 2018, 3:00:00 PM
Category: WALS – Wednesday Afternoon Lectures
Description: NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series
Historically, mitochondria have been primarily viewed as biosynthetic and bioenergetic organelles that generate metabolites for the production of macromolecules and adenosine triphosphate (ATP), respectively. The work of the Chandel laboratory has elucidated that mitochondria have a third distinct role whereby they release reactive oxygen species (ROS) and metabolites to regulate transcription factors and epigenetics. For his lecture, Dr. Chandel will present his lab’s ongoing efforts to understand how mitochondria, in addition to producing ATP, regulate cancer and immunity.
