Overview

The function of the heart is highly dependent on oxidative energy that is generated in mihondria. Defects in mihondrial structure and function can be found in association with cardiovascular diseases. Mihondria and the Heart discusses the role that mihondria plays in cardiovascular disease, including biogenesis and function of cardiac mihondria during normal growth, development and aging. In addition, nonbioenergetic, biogenesis and degradation pathways are explored. Understanding these pathways and the effects that mihondrial defects have in cardiac pathology is extremely important in establishing the diagnosis and treatment of mihondrial-based cardiac diseases.
