Unleashing the adaptive potential of skeletal muscle: reducing the repressor receptor interacting protein 140 (RIP140) allows activation of mitochondrial biogenesis.

Thinking in the slow lane: does reduced energy metabolism indicate lower neuronal activity in the aging brain? (Top 10% viewed)

A new mitochondrial mechanism that links high-fat diet to insulin resistance (IR) is demonstrated in this study.

The cellular mechanism governing energy starvation in cardiac overload and failure is revealed by the pairing of modelling with in vivo measurements.

In this study, reversal of cell energy failure (loss of ATP) due to a mitochondrial mutation was achieved by activating synthesis of new mitochondria.
