Mitochondria-targeted low-molecular weight compounds for probing mitochondrial function

Richard-C.-Hartley-Mitochondria-2019-congressThe Scientific Committee of WMS is honored to announce that Prof. Richard C. Hartley, Professor of Chemical Biology from University of Glasgow, United Kingdom, will be joining us for our 10th Anniversary Edition of Targeting Mitochondria World Congress, which will be held in Berlin on October 28th-29th, 2019.

During the Congress Prof. Richard C. Hartley will talk about "Mitochondria-targeted low-molecular weight compounds for probing mitochondrial functions".

The Hartley group specializes in designer small molecules targeted to accumulate in the mitochondrial matrix.  These can be used both to detect and manipulate mitochondrial redox processes.  Examples include compounds for mitochondrial  superoxide detection (MitoNeoD) and generation (MitoPQ), for selective depletion of mitochondrial antioxidant defences (MitoCDNB), and for mitochondrial protection (MitoGamide).  Synthetic chemicals can also be used to mimic mitochondrial signaling and modulate inflammatory responses (octyl itaconate).
