Study uncovers new mechanism regulating the release of waste products in mitochondria

It is known that the mitochondria initiate processes involving autophagy to clean the environment and to avoid toxic waste products.
The process is known to be initiated by the activation of several proteins called ULK1 (units L1-CAP3), which act as signal-transducers.
The results showed that the mitochondrial recyclers of intestinal microflora are not only the ones that convert nutrients and waste products into usable fuel, which is very efficient, but also that they do so by switching on a signalling pathway and inhibiting an enzyme that activates the mitochondria.
