What is it about?
An experiment was performed on mice groups incubated at three different temperatures (30, 23, and 6 Celsius degree). The proteome analysis revealed differential expression of proteins leading to discovery/activation of a new cycle at lower temperature termed HEAT Cycle.

Why is it important?
It is expected that the newly discovered HEAT Cycle may open new horizons to study mitochondria-related diseases. It will also help in designing futuristic food items.
