Mitochondrial Physiology and Vegetal Molecules: Therapeutic potential of natural compounds on mitochondrial health provides a comprehensive overview of mitochondrial physiology throughout the human life span, as well as the effect of molecules of vegetal origin on mitochondrial health. The editor has lined up a team of worldwide experts to cover the most exciting and high-impact advancements of research in this area.
This book is structured into two parts that provide a balance of both foundational and applied content. Part I provides an overview of mitochondrial physiology including its structure, dynamics, biogenesis, membranes, DNA transcription, and translation in the mitochondria. Part I also covers other themes such as apoptosis. Part II then covers the effect of specific vegetable-derived molecules on mitochondrial health, including anthocyanins, caffeine, cannabinoids, carnosic and rosmarinic acids, citrus flavonoids, polyphenols, pterostilbene, resveratrol, and sulforaphane, among others.
Mitochondrial Physiology and Vegetal Molecules: Therapeutic potential of natural compounds on mitochondrial health is a complete resource for researchers in this exciting field. Its comprehensive coverage makes it particularly interesting to bioscience researchers willing to understand the foundations of mitochondrial physiology throughout the human life span. Clinician researchers, MDs, nutritionists, pharmacologists, and sports scientists may be attracted to the detailed information on the health effects of vegetal origin molecules on the organelle.

AuthorsMarcos Roberto de Oliveira Professor, Department of Biochemistry, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Instituto de Ci�ncias B�sicas da Saude (ICBS), Departamento de Bioqu�mica, Rua Ramiro Barcelos, Brazil. Dr Oliveira PhD earned his bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in 2005, followed by a Master's and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the same institution. His research focuses on the neuroprotection mediated by natural molecules and involves studies on mitochondrial physiology, redox biology, bioenergetics, and inflammation in both in vitro and in vivo experimental models.
Dr Oliveira has published numerous articles on peer-reviewed Journals, including Molecular Neurobiology, Chemico-Biological Interactions, Biotechnology Advances, and Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity. He has also edited a book on the effects of plant molecules on the mitochondria Mitochondrial Physiology and Vegetal Molecules: Therapeutic Potential of Natural Compounds on Mitochondrial Health and a book on the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in both neurological disturbances and intoxication Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Nanotherapeutics: Aging, Diseases, and Nanotechnology-Related Strategies in Mitochondrial Medicine.
