"Cooperative Assembly of the Mitochondrial Respiratory Chain"
Join the webinar
The mitochondrial respiratory chain is composed of 4 complexes inside the mitochondrial inner membrane, which utilize the reducing power of the NADH and FADH2 to ultimately drive an ATP synthase to form ATP. Although the structures of these complexes are known, their assembly and how they interact with one another remains an area of debate. Erika will discuss how these mitochondrial respiratory chain complexes are assembled and form supercomplexes, also known as respirasomes.
