The mitochondrial respiratory chain (RC) produces most of the cellular ATP and requires strict quality-control mechanisms. To examine RC subunit proteostasis in vivo, we measured RC protein half-lives (HLs) in mice by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry with metabolic [(2)H3]-leucine heavy isotope labeling under divergent conditions. We...


... To assist in minimizing cellular damage and preserve homeostasis, many quality control systems, including autophagic clearance of damaged mitochondria, have been identified. Mitophagy exists at the crossroads of cell survival and death [3,36], while mitophagy failure has been linked to a variety of pathological conditions and disorders [37,38]. Mitochondria may undergo mitophagy via a variety of mechanisms, and these combinative mechanisms highlight the evolutionary significance of removing damaged mitochondria. ...
