The role of mitochondrial dynamics in metabolic regulation


Jules Girard and Camille Lefebvre

Mitochondria are essential organelles responsible for energy production and various metabolic processes. Their dynamic nature, characterized by continuous cycles of fission and fusion, is crucial for maintaining cellular homeostasis and responding to metabolic demands. This review explores the mechanisms of mitochondrial dynamics and their role in metabolic regulation. We discuss the impact of mitochondrial morphology on bio-energetics, the involvement of key proteins in fission and fusion processes, and the interplay between mitochondrial dynamics and metabolic pathways. Additionally, we highlight the implications of dysregulated mitochondrial dynamics in metabolic disorders and potential therapeutic approaches.
