New point for functional relaxation of yeast mitochondria after the whole genome duplication
Two major processes generate cellular energy in eukaryotic organisms: fermentation, which occurs anaerobically, and respiration, which requires oxygen and function in mitochondria production about 80% of the energy needed by most eukaryotic organisms. Therefore mitochondrion is called as the power house of eukaryotes. Many mutants of relative genes function in this organelle would generate impo... more
Serotonin as a key regulator of fear memory
 Serotonin (5-HT) is an important neurotransmitter and has been implicated in a wide range of disorders such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and learning and memory disorders. Our recent work show that mice lacking serotonin are less anxious compared to control animals but retain fearful memories for much longer. This work was a collaborative effort between the la... more
