PROJECT NARRATIVE Heart disease remains a major health problem worldwide. This study will address the importance of a novel protein post-translational modification in the maintenance of heart function under resting and stressed conditions, and will investigate how this modification regulates the function of mitochondria, whose dysfunction is implicated in cardiac and other diseases. This research will also produce broadly applicable, basic biological insights.
