Loss of MED1 triggers mitochondrial biogenesis in C2C12 cells.

Under stress conditions transcription factors, including their coactivators, play major roles in mitochondrial biogenesis and oxidative phosphorylation. MED1 (Mediator complex subunit 1) functions as a coactivator of several transcription factors and is implicated in adipogenesis of the lipid and glucose metabolism. This suggests that MED1 may play a role… CONTINUE READING
