Phosphatase and tensin homolog-induced kinase 1 (PINK1) on the outer membranes of impaired mitochondria promotes mitophagy and regulates mitochondrial morphology. Mammalian oocytes and early embryos are mitochondria rich, but mitochondrial dynamics during preimplantation embryo development is not well-studied. To investigate whether PINK1 is required for mitochondrial dynamics in porcine preimplantation embryos, gene knockdown and inhibitors were used, and mitochondrial dynamics were observed by transmission electron microscopy. PINK1 knockdown significantly impaired blastocyst formation and quality, induced mitochondrial elongation and swelling, and reduced mitochondrial DNA copy number. PINK1 knockdown-induced mitochondrial elongation caused mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, and ATP deficiency, significantly increasing autophagy and apoptosis. Profission dynamin-related protein 1 overexpression prevented PINK1 knockdown-induced impairment of embryo development, mitochondrial elongation, and dysfunction. Thus, PINK1 promotes mitochondrial fission in porcine preimplantation embryos.-Niu, Y.-J., Nie, Z.-W., Shin, K.-T., Zhou, W., Cui, X.-S. PINK1 regulates mitochondrial morphology via promoting mitochondrial fission in porcine preimplantation embryos.

Mitochondria are essential and dynamic organelles, undergoing constant fission and fusion. The primary players in mitochondrial morphology (MFN1/2, OPA1, DRP1) have been identified, but their mechanis...
The mitochondrial outer membrane protein Mitochondrial Fission Factor (Mff) plays a key role in both physiological and pathological fission. It is well established that at stressed or functionally imp...
Mitochondrion is a highly dynamic organelle that undergoes frequent fusion and division, and the balance of these opposing processes regulates mitochondrial morphology, distribution, and function. Mit...
Mitochondrial fragmentation frequently occurs in chronic pathological conditions as seen in various human diseases. In fact, abnormal mitochondrial morphology and mitochondrial dysfunction are hallmar...
Phosphorylation of Dynamin-related protein1 (Drp1) represents an important regulatory mechanism for mitochondrial fission. Here we established the role of Drp1 Serine 600 (S600) phosphorylation on mit...
Our preliminary data suggests that pharmacological inhibition of the mitochondrial fission protein, Drp1, reduced atherosclerotic plaque volume and attenuated macrophage accumulation withi...
An association between insulin resistance and mitochondrial dysfunction has been observed in aging, T2D, and in offspring of patients with T2D. It remains to be determined whether pharmac...
Our central hypothesis is that oral CoQ10 is a safe and effective treatment for children with inborn errors of mitochondrial energy metabolism due to defects in specific respiratory chain ...
It has been suggested that mitochondrial dysfunction might play a role in the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy. From animal studies, it has been suggested that an altered PPAR and PG...
Mitochondrial Diseases are rare, progressive, multi-system, often-early fatal disorders affecting both children and adults. KH176 is a novel chemical entity currently under development for...
In vitro fertilization technique that uses mitochondrial DNA from a healthy donor in order to prevent the transmission of MITOCHONDRIAL DISEASE.
A mitochondrial uncoupling protein that is expressed in many tissues and exhibits the greatest expression in SKELETAL MUSCLE. It regulates mitochondrial ATP production and the generation of REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES.
Mitochondrial anion carrier proteins that function as dimers and form proton channels in the INNER MITOCHONDRIAL MEMBRANE which creates proton leaks and uncouples OXIDATIVE PHOSPHORYLATION from ATP synthesis, resulting in the generation of heat instead of ATP.
The continuous remodeling of MITOCHONDRIA shape by fission and fusion in response to physiological conditions.
Diseases caused by abnormal function of the MITOCHONDRIA. They may be caused by mutations, acquired or inherited, in mitochondrial DNA or in nuclear genes that code for mitochondrial components. They may also be the result of acquired mitochondria dysfunction due to adverse effects of drugs, infections, or other environmental causes.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
