Comparative -omic analyses of five knockout mouse strains with disrupted mitochondrial DNA expression at different levels provide a high quality resource of altered gene expression patterns that reveal several common secondary patophysiological changes of mitochondrial dysfunction.
Lower mitochondrial coenzyme Q was a consistent feature across multiple in vitro and in vivo models of insulin resistance and was sufficient to cause insulin resistance through increased mitochondrial oxidants.
Publication bias, in which positive results are preferentially reported by authors and published by journals, can restrict the visibility of evidence against false claims and allow such claims to be canonized inappropriately as facts.
An image-based multiplex autophagosome RNAi screen targeting all Rab GTPases as well as their GAPs and GEFs identifies the Rab GEF SMCR8 as multifaceted autophagy modulator, which regulates kinase activity and gene expression of ULK1.
A detailed analysis of protein abundance and phosphorylation changes across mitotic subphases and interphase in asynchronously growing human cells has been enabled by combining FACS with quantitative MS-based proteomics.
The super-resolution fluorescence microscopy approach polarization PALM (p-PALM) reveals that macromolecular crowding and inhomogeneity within nuclear pores generate a structurally and dynamically complex permeability barrier.
