Organelle Network-Contact


Overview

Mitochondria form physical contacts and communicate with endoplasmic reticulum, which has emerged as specialized organelle network for various cellular processes including energy production, calcium signaling and apoptosis.

We attempt to elucidate composition, dynamics and physiological roles of mitochondria-associated endoplasmic reticulum membrane (MAM) in the cell- and patho-biological contexts.
