    Monitoring of Paternal Mitochondrial Degradation in Caenorhabditis elegans

    In Caenorhabditis elegans embryos, paternally inherited mitochondria and their mitochondrial DNA are degraded via selective autophagy called allophagy (allogeneic organelle autophagy). This is a developmentally p...

    Immunocytochemical Monitoring of PINK1/Parkin-Mediated Mitophagy in Cultured Cells

    Both PINK1 and parkin are the responsible genes (PARK6 and PARK2, respectively) for familial early-onset Parkinson’s disease (PD). Several lines of evidences have suggested that mitochondrial dysfunction would...
