Within mitochondria, the biogenesis of the respiratory chain complexes (I to IV), is a highly coordinated process. Cox2 is a mitochondrial-encoded central subunit of the complex IV. Using yeast as a model system, we find that the ribosome receptor Mba1 forms a ribosomes-nascent chain complex with ribosome translating Cox2 and the Cox2 chaperone Cox20. We ...

Magnesium based hybrids have potential applications for hydrogen storage in the solid state. Although magnesium can store a high amount of hydrogen (7.6 wt.%), high temperatures (∼300 °C) and pressures (0.3–1 MPa) are required for the same. Additionally, the kinetics of absorption of hydrogen in bulk magnesium is slow. In the current work, Mg-LaNi5-soot hybrids ...

In addition to producing energy, mitochondria perform a number of biochemical and signaling functions. Recent evidence suggests that, like neurons in neural networks, mitochondria sense, integrate, and signal. Mitochondria thereby transmit information about external stressors and translate it into molecular and physiological responses. To understand how this influences gene expression and multisystemic neuroendocrine responses to ...
