Mitochondrial hyperpolarization in pulmonary vascular remodeling. Mitochondrial uncoupling protein deficiency as disease model.


Alterations of mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP), reactive oxygen species (ROS), and mitochondrial respiration are possible triggers of pulmonary vascular remodeling in pulmonary hypertension (PH). We investigated the role of MMP in PH and hypothesized that deletion of the mitochondrial uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2) increases MMP, thus promoting… (More)
