Mitochondria, through oxidative phosphorylation, are the primary source of energy production in all tissues under aerobic conditions. Although critical to life, energy production is not the only function of mitochondria, and the composition of this organelle is tailored to meet the specific needs of each cell type. As an organelle, the mitochondrion has been a popular subject for proteomic analysis, but quantitative proteomic methods have yet to be applied to tease apart subtle differences… CONTINUE READING
