Hintergrund Mitochondria are the power centrals of the cell and play an essential role in energy production. Damage to mitochondria activates signaling pathways that induce apoptosis. The mitochondrial permeability transition pore (MPT pore or MPTP) is a nonspecific channel formed by components of the inner and outer mitochondrial membranes, and appears to be involved in the release of mitochondrial components during cell death. In healthy cells, MPTP's flicker between open and closed states but during cell death MPTP's dramatically alter the permeability of the mitochondria. Cytochrome c release and loss of mitochondrial membrane potential are subsequent to continuous pore activation.
