Cellular iron is a vital component of life
Iron is essential for many key cellular cellular processes, including respiration, DNA synthesis and oxygen transport. In excess, cellular iron catalyzes the generation of free radicals that damage protein, DNA and lipids, whereas cellular iron deficiency impairs cellular proliferation. Recently, we looked at iron dysregulation following treatment with the chemotherapeutic drug doxorubicin.
Weekly Lab Meetings
Every week we meet together to discuss lab lab business, research, and to go over a research paper similar to this one!
Oroboros O2k-evaluating mitochondrial function
The Oroboros O2k respirometer allows us to measure mitochondrial function in a variety of cells and conditions.
