Abstract The dynamics properties of mitochondria control their function. I will discuss our efforts to understand the molecular mechanisms and physiological functions of mitochondrial dynamics, particularly mitochondrial fusion and fission. Defects in mitochondrial dynamics cause neurodegenerative disease in humans and failure in diverse organ systems in mice. Our work in mice indicates that the balance between mitochondrial fusion versus fission is critically important for cardiac function. In addition to mitochondrial fusion and fission, the selective degradation of mitochondria by mitophagy is also important for maintaining mitochondrial function. I will discuss how this process ensures the uniparental inheritance of mitochondria in mammals. I will also discuss our use of somatic cell genetics to identify genes involved in mitochondrial function. This includes our attempt to understand why cancer cells are dependent on glucose metabolism.-Dr. David C. Chan
