Autophagy and mitochondria: Targets in neurodegenerative disorders

Autophagy and mitochondria: Targets in neurodegenerative disorders
(Bentham Science Publishers) Cellular homeostasis depends on the timely clearance of damaged cellular organelles and proteins via pathways including autophagy. Mitochondria and mitochondrial autophagy play a vital role in cellular health and failure of these pathways can have a devastating effect on cellular homeostasis. Here, the researchers review the involvement of mitochondrial and autophagy dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders specifically focusing ... read more
