Mitocellular Communication

Mitocellular communication#Mitochondria are the parts of cells that turn #sugars, #fats and #proteins into forms of chemical energy that the body can use to carry on living. They are #organelles that are found in the cells of every complex #organism and produce around 90% of the chemical energy required for cells to survive. They are the only organelles to retain their own genome and the communication abilities of transcription and translating in order to harvest energy. Their complex communication network allows them to stay in tune with #cellular needs and nuclear transcriptional programs and to alleviate mitochondrial dysfunction. Swiss cytologists have published a review of recent findings on the wide array of different mechanisms that contribute to these mitocellular communication networks.
