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.
