“When we first started studying isolated mitochondria, we knew they behaved like a battery based on some work from the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Gerontology and UCLA, but we could not control them very well inside the cell to probe them. Now we can control each individual electrical component and cause it to charge and discharge,” says Peter Burke, UCI professor of electrical engineering and computer science, co-author of a paper in ACS Nano on using super-resolution microscopes to study tiny components inside cells that are key to human health and longevity.
