PURPOSE To study the impact of the mitochondrial ubiquitin ligase MARCH5 on mitochondrial morphology and induction of apoptosis using an in vitro model of neuronal precursor cells exposed to glaucoma-relevant stress conditions. METHODS RGC5 cells transfected with expression constructs for MARCH5, MARCH5(H43W), Dpr1(K38A) or vector control were exposed to(More)
Maintaining mitochondrial function is essential for neuronal survival and offers protection against neurodegeneration. Ubiquitin-mediated, proteasome-dependent protein degradation in the form of outer mitochondrial membrane associated degradation (OMMAD) was shown to play roles in maintenance of mitochondria on the level of proteostasis, but also mitophagy(More)
