Abnormalities in mitochondria-associated membranes and phospholipid biosynthetic enzymes in the mnd/mnd mouse model of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis.


Endoplasmic reticulum-like membranes (MAM) that are associated with mitochondria have been implicated as intermediates in the import of lipids, particularly phosphatidylserine, from the endoplasmic reticulum to mitochondria (Vance, J.E. (1990) J. Biol. Chem. 265, 7248-7256; Shiao, Y.-J. et al. (1995) J. Biol. Chem. 270, 11190-11198). We have now examined… (More)
