Researchers Discover Mitochondrial “Circuit Breaker” that Protects Heart from Damage
Published:04 May2017    Source:National Institutes of Health
A team of scientists from the National Institutes of Health has discovered biological mechanisms that appear to prevent damage to the heart muscle's “power grid,” the network of mitochondrial circuits that provide energy to cells.
The lead author of the study is Brian Glancy, Ph.D., an investigator with the Muscle Energetics Laboratory of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), which is part of NIH.
