Damage to mitochondria can lead to the depolarization of the inner mitochondrial membrane, thereby sensitizing impaired mitochondria for selective elimination by autophagy. However, fusion of uncoupled mitochondria with polarized mitochondria can compensate for damage, reverse membrane depolarization, and obviate mitophagy. Parkin, an E3 ubiquitin ligase(More)
In addition to established membrane remodeling roles in various cellular locations, actin has recently emerged as a participant in mitochondrial fission. However, the underlying mechanisms of its participation remain largely unknown. We report that transient de novo F-actin assembly on the mitochondria occurs upon induction of mitochondrial fission and(More)
Recent studies have revealed a role for the ubiquitin/proteasome system in the regulation and turnover of outer mitochondrial membrane (OMM)-associated proteins. Although several molecular components required for this process have been identified, the mechanism of proteasome-dependent degradation of OMM-associated proteins is currently unclear. We show that(More)
Data curation is the act of discovering a data source(s) of interest , cleaning and transforming the new data, semantically integrating it with other local data sources, and deduplicat-ing the resulting composite. There has been much research on the various components of curation (especially data integration and deduplication). However, there has been(More)
Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) inhibits antigen presentation by Langerhans cells (LC) and macrophages, and LC are anatomically associated with CGRP-containing epidermal nerves. To determine whether CGRP may produce some of its functional effects through regulation of cytokine expression , we utilized enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) of(More)
Self-related information has been found to be processed more quickly and accurately in studies with supraliminal self-stimuli and traditional paradigms such as masked priming. We conducted two experiments to investigate whether subliminal self-face processing enjoys this advantage and the neural correlates of processing self-faces at both subliminal and(More)
Ubiquitin- and proteasome-dependent outer mitochondrial membrane (OMM)-associated degradation (OMMAD) is critical for mitochondrial and cellular homeostasis. However, the scope and molecular mechanisms of the OMMAD pathways are still not well understood. We report that the OMM-associated E3 ubiquitin ligase MARCH5 controls dynamin-related protein 1(More)
Future progress in neuroscience hinges on reconstruction of neuronal circuits to the level of individual synapses. Because of the specifics of neuronal architecture, imaging must be done with very high resolution and throughput. While Electron Microscopy (EM) achieves the required resolution in the transverse directions, its depth resolution is a severe(More)
