Description

Get Insight on the Function of Supercomplexes in Biological Systems Redox Proteins in Supercomplexes and Signalosomes is one of the first books to explore the key role played by redox proteins and their interaction network in a wide range of essential cellular processes in all domains of life. The book explains how the mitochondrial respiratory chain is dynamically organized in supercomplexes even under physiological conditions. It also addresses the impact of supercomplex assembly on mitochondrial morphology, physiology, and biogenesis to shed light on the molecular mechanisms of pathological situations, including aging. Discover the Connection between Bioenergetic Supercomplexes and Signalosomes Compiling state-of-the-art research from leading practitioners in the field, this book gives you guidance on dealing with these biological systems in your investigations. The book shows that supercomplexes and signalosomes provide the link between reductive and systems biology, which enables us to understand how the molecular properties of individual macromolecular components trigger cellular function.show more

About Ricardo O. Louro

Ricardo O. Louro is the leader of the Inorganic Biochemistry and NMR Laboratory at the Instituto de Tecnologia Quimica e Biologica (ITQB) Antonio Xavier of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Dr. Louro is a member of the Portuguese Biochemical Society, the Society for Biological Inorganic Chemistry, and the International Society for Microbial Electrochemical Technologies. His research work focuses on the investigation of the molecular bases for biological electron-transfer phenomena relevant for bioenergetic processes and the applications of this knowledge to blue-, red- or white-biotechnology. Irene Diaz-Moreno is an associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology in the Instituto de Bioquimica Vegetal y Fotosintesis (IBVF) at the Centro de Investigaciones Cientificas Isla de la Cartuja (cicCartuja). Her past research has focused on molecular recognition between metalloproteins involved in electron-transfer processes and the regulatory mechanisms of mRNA decay by RNA-binding proteins. Dr. Diaz-Moreno is currently developing research projects in biointeractomics as well as on the posttranslational regulation of biological macromolecules.show more
