Differential role of atypical Rho GTPases Miro-1 and Miro-2 for controlling mitochondrial dynamics and transport
ID: 913033
Start date: 2017-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Regulated transport of mitochondria is essential for providing ATP spatio-temporaly to power nerve cell function and calcium buffering during release of neurotransmitters or post-synaptic receptor activation. The major player of this transport machinery is Mitochondrial Rho G...
