Weizmann researchers identify new ties between the parts of a cell: physical connections that are vital for health

Left: normal nerve cells; right cells genetically engineered to neutralize MTCH2. Fluorescent proteins reveal the calcium uptake in the mitochondria of these cells. The genetically engineered cells reveal dramatically less calcium uptake – evidence of the crucial role this gene plays in mitochondria function
