Epigenetic Modulators Link Mitochondrial Redox Homeostasis to Cardiac Function

Zaher El Beck 1The Redox Medicine Society is pleased to welcome Dr. Zaher El Beck, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, to the 26th International Conference "Redox Medicine 2024" this June in Paris. 

Title: Epigenetic Modulators Link Mitochondrial Redox Homeostasis to Cardiac Function

About Dr. El Beck
In the realm of cardiovascular redox biology, Dr. El Beck's research offers a unique perspective, highlighting the diverse functions of oxidative species and reductants in cellular processes. Specifically, he uncovers the pivotal role of mitochondrial isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH2) as a significant antioxidant defense mechanism in cardiomyocytes, revealing its intricate interplay with NRF2 and the impact of sex differences on cardiac antioxidative capacity. The findings, elucidated in the recent manuscript "Epigenetic modulators link mitochondrial redox homeostasis to cardiac function" published in BioRxiv, shed light on novel pathways and potential therapeutic targets in heart failure.
