They identified three genetic pathways that appear to be involved: the TCP-1 ring complex chaperonin, which helps proteins fold; mitochondrial electron transport chain complexes (mETC); and a suite of genes responsible for the body's circadian rhythm.
4) "The cell model employed casts a broader net for defining mitochondrial toxicity to include targets beyond the electron transport chain," says Kendall Wallace, a professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Minnesota, who was not involved with the study.
Targeting the mitochondrial electron transport chain should be evaluated with caution, considering its potential broad off-target effects, but exploiting any of the energetic 'addictions' of cancer cells in cancer progression holds valuable therapeutic promise," said Dr.
The most important molecule is water which splits into its basic components - hydrogen and oxygen - evolving electrons for the smooth running of electron transport chain which is the basic part of light reaction of photosynthesis.
This electron transport chain is called a "Z-scheme" because the pattern of movement resembles the letter Z on its side.
