The brain is enormously metabolically active, placing a large emphasis on maintaining ATP supply. Therefore, identifying mechanisms to sustain mitochondrial...

... that are transgenic for fluorescent LC3 (the hallmark of autophagy) we quantified autophagosomes in cleavage stage embryos. We confirmed that the autophagosome count peaks in four-cell embryos and this correlates with a drop in the mtDNA content of the whole embryo. This suggests removal by mitophagy...
