Progressive decline in mitochondrial function is generally considered one of the hallmarks of aging. We have expressed a Ca2+ sensor in the mitochondrial matrix of C. elegans pharynx cells and we have measured for the first time mitochondrial [Ca2+] ([Ca2+]M) dynamics in the pharynx of live C. elegans worms during aging. Our results show that worms… CONTINUE READING
