How to regulate cardiac excitation-contraction-bioenergetics coupling by mitochondrial fission protein Drp1?

Shey-Shing Sheu

"Studies have shown that Drp1 is abundantly expressed in adult cardiac myocytes. Paradoxically, compared to numerous cell types, adult cardiac myocytes exhibit very low frequency in mitochondrial fission. In this presentation, I will describe the mechanisms of non-canonical (fission-independent) roles of Drp1 in regulating cardiac bioenergetics during the heartbeats."

Prof Shey-Shing Sheu from Thomas Jefferson University, USA will talk about the regulation of cardiac excitation-contraction-bioenergetics during Targeting Mitochondria 2017 world congress which will be held in Berlin, Germany.
