At EB2011: The role of metabolism in disease
Date:4/7/2011

WASHINGTON, April 7, 2011 Metabolism encompasses the biochemical reactions that sustain life and is usually thought of as two complementary systems: one that breaks down nutrients to generate energy and another that harnesses this energy to produce the building blocks cells need to thrive. Considering the fundamental importance of this chemical give-and-take, it's not surprising that metabolic dysfunctions can lead to serious diseases.

Next week, experts on metabolism will convene for a thematic program, at the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology's annual meeting at the Experimental Biology 2011 conference in Washington, D.C., to discuss scientific advances in understanding the links between metabolic function and the onset of disease. Theme organizers Barbara E. Corkey from the Boston University School of Medicine and Marc Prentki from the University of Montreal have invited an international team of scientists to present their recent findings on this medically important topic in Room 202B of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

Mitochondrial Function and Disease: The first platform session will be held from 3:45 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday and will focus on mitochondria, the "powerhouses" of cells, which generate ATP, the cell's basic unit of energy currency. In this session, two researchers, one from the University of Miami and another from McGill University, will present their research linking mitochondrial dysfunction to aging. A third presenter from Boston University will discuss studies with mice that have mitochondrial mutations that lead to obesity and hyperglycemia.

Workshop Measuring Mitochondrial Function and Dysfunction: In addition to the regular platform sessions, this thematic program also will feature a workshop from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Participants can review the principles of measuring mitochondrial function and dysfunction and learn about the newest tools available in the field. '/>"/>
