Mitochondria, Calcium and the Heart

Mitochondria are an essential source of energy in mammalian cells. Still, we only begin to understand how mitochondria communicate with their hosting cell. In cardiac myocytes, Ca2+ is the main mediator of contraction and also controls other intracellular signaling processes.

In this mini-symposium, the current evidence and perspectives on mitochondrial signaling and subcellular Ca2+ trafficking in the heart are discussed.
