Summary of "Methods to Detect Mitophagy in Neurons During Disease."

Mitophagy is the selective degradation of mitochondria by autophagy. Methods to study mitophagy in neurons is of increasing importance as neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's display disrupted mitophagy as part of their pathogenesis. Since the last decade, researchers have determined how selective mitophagy pathways such as PINK1/Parkin and Mul1 function at the cellular level. Thus, advances in techniques to study these pathways specifically in neurons and glia have arisen. This review will introduce mitophagy pathways studied in neurons and evaluate current techniques available to investigate mitophagy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The ability to detect sharp boundaries (stimuli) and to detect slight changes in luminance at regions without distinct contours. Psychophysical measurements of this visual function are used to evaluate visual acuity and to detect eye disease.

Neurons in the OLFACTORY EPITHELIUM with proteins (RECEPTORS, ODORANT) that bind, and thus detect, odorants. These neurons send their DENDRITES to the surface of the epithelium with the odorant receptors residing in the apical non-motile cilia. Their unmyelinated AXONS synapse in the OLFACTORY BULB of the BRAIN.

The ability to detect scents or odors, such as the function of OLFACTORY RECEPTOR NEURONS.

A deep blue dye (with the formula OC6H4NC6H4OH) used to detect AMMONIA in a common test called the Berthelot's reaction and to detect PARACETAMOL by spectrophotometry.

A test to detect non-agglutinating ANTIBODIES against ERYTHROCYTES by use of anti-antibodies (the Coombs' reagent.) The direct test is applied to freshly drawn blood to detect antibody bound to circulating red cells. The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibodies that can bind to red blood cells.
