Sulforaphane Balances Ca2+ Homeostasis Injured by Excessive Fat via Mitochondria‐Associated Membrane (MAM)

One of the hot topics which will discussed during Polyphenols Applications 2021 Congress is Sulforaphane. A study just published by Sicong Tian and al. about Sulforaphane Balances Ca2+ Homeostasis Injured by Excessive Fat via Mitochondria‐Associated Membrane (MAM).

The Scope this study is: Mitochondria‐associated membrane (MAM) connecting endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and mitochondria plays a significant role in lipid metabolism and Ca2+ homeostasis. Albeit sulforaphane (SFN) shows potential in ameliorating excessive fat accumulation and mitochondrial function, whether MAM is a target of SFN and its underling mechanisms are still unclear.

The author suggested these results suggested that SFN balanced the Ca2+ homeostasis in the MAM through regulating Ca2+ flux by Ca2+ channel IP3R and MCU.
