The ultrastructure, function, and physical and chemical properties of mitochondria have become important issues in scientific research. Current mitochondrial isolation methods mainly rely on the physical and chemical properties of mitochondria. Our team presents a fast and reliable new isolation method based on magnetic nanoparticles binding with monoamine oxidase-A (MAO-A) expressed in the mitochondria. MAO-A is expressed in the outer… CONTINUE READING
