Mitochondrial Function in Lung Health and Disease

Mitochondria, often referred to as the “powerhouses” of the cell, generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP) by oxidative phosphorylation or OXPHOS, and maintain cellular homeostasis. In addition to generating ATP, mitochondria are involved in regulation of cell cycle, proliferation, free radical product...
