Mitochondrial research has influenced our understanding of human evolution, physiology and pathophysiology. Mitochondria, intracellular organelles widely known as 'energy factories' of the cell, also play fundamental roles in intermediary metabolism, steroid hormone and heme biosyntheses, calcium signaling, generation of radical oxygen species, and(More)
Concentration and distribution of individual endogenous ceramide species is crucial for apoptosis induction in response to various stimuli. Exogenous ceramide analogs induce apoptosis and can in turn modify the composition/concentrations of endogenous ceramide species and associated signaling. In this study, we show here that the elevation of endogenous(More)
