Subcellular sphingolipids and ceramides in organelle function

Dec. 1, 2021 | Duration: 1 hr. 2 mins.

The subcellular distribution and function of lipids remains a serious challenge to understanding biology. Two student presentations at a recent scientific conference highlighted a new innovation in mass spectrometry that improves organelle identification and a new function for ceramide-dependent mitophagy associated with aging in T cells. A committee of established ASBMB members selected these two innovative and exciting presentations for this LRD seminar.
