Analysis of Mitochondrial Quality Control in Aging


To maintain cellular homeostasis, cells employ a complex network of quality control mechanisms to identify and eliminate these damaged mitochondria. Mitochondrial quality control is an important factor in the maintenance of mitochondrial function that mainly includes the biogenesis of mitochondria and the biodegradation of damaged mitochondria. However, a reduction in the level of biogenesis and/or degradation can cause cellular senescence. CD BioSciences offers comprehensive analysis services and expertise in studying the mechanisms associated with mitochondrial quality control during aging.

Overview of Mitochondrial Quality Control Analysis Services

Analysis of mitochondrial dynamics in aging

We perform analyses of mitochondrial dynamics in aging, including fusion, fission, and mitophagy, which play a critical role in maintaining mitochondrial quality control. Using advanced imaging techniques such as confocal microscopy and live-cell imaging, we can analyze mitochondrial morphology, fusion, fission, and turnover during aging. Our services enable clients to assess alterations in mitochondrial dynamics and their impact on quality control mechanisms.

Evaluation of mitochondrial proteostasis in aging

We provide evaluation services for mitochondrial proteostasis, involving the regulation of protein synthesis, folding, and degradation to maintain protein homeostasis within mitochondria. Through proteomic approaches such as mass spectrometry-based protein profiling, we can analyze changes in the mitochondrial proteome and identify alterations in protein quality control mechanisms associated with aging.

Assessment of mitophagy in aging

We provide assessment services for mitophagy, the selective removal of damaged mitochondria. Utilizing assays to measure mitophagy markers like PINK1, Parkin, and LC3, we are aimed at gaining insights into their role in maintaining mitochondrial quality control during aging.

Analysis Services for Mitochondrial Quality Control Mechanisms

Mitophagy analysis in aging

We focus on the study of mitophagy to clarify the intrinsic mechanism of mitochondrial quality control. Our services involve the assessment of mitophagy markers utilizing techniques like immunofluorescence, Western blotting, and quantitative PCR.

Our aim in this analysis is to understand the regulation of the mitotic pathway during senescence and its impact on mitochondrial quality control and cellular homeostasis. In addition, we also help to analyze the changes in the expression of mitochondrial autophagy-associated proteins, which not only affect the degradation of damaged mitochondria but also are closely related to cellular senescence.

Mitochondrial-derived vesicle (MDV) pathway analysis in aging

We employ techniques such as live-cell imaging, electron microscopy, and protein cargo analysis to elucidate the dynamics of MDVs and their relevance in aging-related mitochondrial quality control.
