• #### Early nutrition and ageing: can we intervene? ﻿

Ageing, a complex process that results in progressive decline in intrinsic physiological function leading to an increase in mortality rate, has been shown to be affected by early life nutrition. Accumulating data from ...
• #### The Enigma of the Respiratory Chain Supercomplex ﻿

(Elsevier (Cell Press), 2017-04-04)
Respiratory chain dysfunction plays an important role in human disease and aging. It is now well established that the individual respiratory complexes can be organized into supercomplexes, and structures for these ...
• #### The mitochondria–endoplasmic reticulum contact sites: a signalling platform for cell death ﻿

(Elsevier, 2017-08-01)
Mitochondria evolved as an endosymbiont providing the cell with a dizzying array of catabolic and anabolic processes essential for life. However, mitochondria have retained the ability to kill from within, and are widely ...
• #### Dealing with an Unconventional Genetic Code in Mitochondria: The Biogenesis and Pathogenic Defects of the 5‐Formylcytosine Modification in Mitochondrial tRNA$^{Met}$ ﻿

(MDPI, 2017-03-02)
Human mitochondria contain their own genome, which uses an unconventional genetic code. In addition to the standard AUG methionine codon, the single mitochondrial tRNA Methionine (mt‐tRNA$^{Met}$) also recognises AUA during ...
