“Many studies have revealed the involvement of mitochondrial stress in the pathophysiology of IBD but whether this is a cause or consequence of the disease is not known,”
“In blood tests, researchers observed more lesions and more mitochondrial DNA—that is, extra copies of genes—in veterans with Gulf War illness, relative to controls without the illness, suggesting excess DNA damage.”
“A new in-vitro study by University of California, Davis, researchers indicates that quaternary ammonium compounds, or “quats,” used as antimicrobial agents in common household products inhibit mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell, as well as estrogenic functions in cells. Their findings will appear online Aug. 22 in Environmental Health Perspectives, a publication of the National […]
“Clinical trials have shown the benefits of Membrane Lipid Replacement in restoring mitochondrial function and reducing symptoms.”
“Among the younger subjects who went through interval training, the activity levels had changed in 274 genes, compared with 170 genes for those who exercised more moderately and 74 for the weight lifters. Among the older cohort, almost 400 genes were working differently now, compared with 33 for the weight lifters and only 19 for […]
“We have found evidence for the first time that bacteria and mitochondria can ‘talk to each other’ at the metabolic level,” Wang said.
“Our findings suggest that injecting the omega-3 fatty acid DHA after a stroke-like event has the ability to protect brain mitochondria against the damaging effects of free radicals,” said senior co-author, Vadim S. Ten, MD, PhD, associate professor of pediatrics at CUMC.”
