Controlling energy production by calcium is an organ-specific affair

Researchers have shown that the composition of the mitochondrial calcium portal (the protein that regulates when and how much calcium enters) is different depending on the organ in the body, and this difference allows mitochondria to tune their energy output by decoding a pattern of amplitude and/or frequency of calcium oscillations inside a cell. The results could shed light on our basic understanding of organ health and disease.
