Giant Mitochondria in Aging
Aging cells accumulate misfunctioning mitochondria, which ordinarily are cleared through the autophagic process of mitophagy. These researchers are studying how this process goes awry, which is tied to several health conditions including Parkinson's Disease. The group's use of MSI resources includes storage and processing of proteomics data sets to quantitatively explore the pathways that lead towards mitophagy.
