Mitochondria in Cancer

  • Cancer cell mitochondria are structurally and functionally different from their normal counterparts and undergo extensive metabolic reprogramming.
  • Mitochondrial-targeted agents emerge as a means to selectively target tumors
    1. Target mitochondrial permeability transition
    2. Target mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilization
    3. Induce the overproduction of reactive oxygen species
    4. Targeting mitochondrial metabolism
