Abstract: Mining, smelting, and use of tungsten (W) have increased rapidly in the past few decades, but recently the US EPA declared this element an “emerging contaminant of concern,” because it is likely a carcinogen. Despite the health concerns, remarkably little research has yet addressed the environmental transport and fate of tungsten. As dissolved tungsten ...

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 ...

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 ...

During mitophagy, impaired in genetic Parkinson’s disease (PD), the kinase PINK1 recruits the E3 ubiquitin ligase Parkin to damaged mitochondria. Increased Parkin levels correct PINK1 deficient Drosophila PD models, suggesting that targeting the Parkin-opposing deubiquitination enzymes (DUBs) can yield the same result.
