Cells increase their mitochondrial membrane fluidity when made to respire more - Path-Breaking research by UoH and inStem scientists

Our body is made up of cells, and all cells require energy. For the cells in our body, a big part of the energy needed is provided by tiny (approximately one millionth of a meter) little cellular compartments (organelles) called mitochondria that are present in most of our body cells. Mitochondri...
