What are the molecular consequences of OXPHOS dysfunction?

Inge Kuhl Mitochondria 2018

Dr. Inge Kühl from the CNRS - Institut de Biologie Intégrative de la Cellule (I2BC), Gif-sur-Yvette, France will give a strategic presentation about “The transcriptomic and proteomic landscape of mitochondrial dysfunction in mouse” during the next 9th World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria, which will be held at Steigenberger Hotel, Berlin on October 23-25, 2018.

According to Dr. Inge Kühl: "Dysfunction of the oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) system is a major cause of human disease and the cellular consequences are highly complex. We did comparative analyses of mitochondrial proteomes, cellular transcriptomes and targeted metabolomics of five knockout mouse strains deficient in essential factors required for mitochondrial DNA gene expression, leading to OXPHOS dysfunction. Moreover, we describe sequential protein changes during post-natal development and progressive OXPHOS dysfunction in time-course analyses in control mice and a middle lifespan knockout, respectively. Our extensive omics analyses provide a high-quality resource of altered gene expression patterns under severe OXPHOS deficiency comparing several mouse models, that will deepen our understanding, open avenues for research and provide an important reference for diagnosis and treatment."
