Analysis of the Effects of Aging on Mitochondrial Respiration


Mitochondria are thought to be central regulators of the aging process. With aging, mitochondrial function declines naturally, leading to the aging process and age-related diseases. Mitochondrial respiration plays a key role in cellular energy production and is closely linked to the aging process in organisms. CD BioSciences provides high-quality mitochondrial respiration analysis services to facilitate understanding the intrinsic mechanisms of aging.

Analysis of the Effects of Aging on Mitochondrial Respiration

Overview of Our Mitochondrial Respiration Analysis Services

Evaluation of mitochondrial respiration in different species during senescence

Our services encompass the evaluation of mitochondrial respiration in a diverse range of species, including mice, rats, and human cell lines. Through comparative analyses, we strive to uncover species variations in mitochondrial function during the aging process.

Evaluation of mitochondrial respiration in different organs and tissues during senescence

We specialize in examining the dynamics of mitochondrial respiration in different organs and tissues as undergo senescence, including but not limited to skeletal muscles, platelets, hearts, brains, kidneys, and livers. Our approach allows for a comprehensive understanding of how mitochondrial function evolves in various biological contexts, shedding light on the impacts of aging on specific tissues and organ systems.

Workflow of Mitochondrial Respiration Analysis Services

Our workflow integrates advanced techniques and comprehensive protocols to ensure reliable evaluation of mitochondrial respiration during senescence.

  • Sample collection and preparation
    We collect tissue or cell samples from the aging organisms and controls. Depending on the sample type, we perform homogenization through mechanical disruption or enzymatic digestion to break down the cellular structure and release the mitochondria. We then obtain highly pure mitochondrial fractions using differential centrifugation or density gradient separation techniques.
  • High-resolution respirometry
    Our high-resolution respiometry techniques involve the precise measurement of oxygen consumption in biological samples, using specialized high-resolution respirometry equipment. The equipment allows for the monitoring of respiratory states and oxygen flux rates in mitochondria during the aging process, providing detailed insights into the functional dynamics of mitochondrial respiration. According to the purpose of the aging studies, we add different stimulatory or inhibitory compounds sequentially, such as ADP, oligomycin, FCCP, or antimycin, to measure specific respiratory states.
  • Data analysis and interpretation
    We obtain oxygen consumption rates or proton flux data and subject them to rigorous analysis using advanced computational tools. Parameters such as basal respiration, maximal respiration capacity, and spare respiratory capacity are calculated to characterize the mitochondrial respiratory profile. Our comprehensive analysis sheds light on the alterations in mitochondrial function during aging.
