What is it about?

we show that mitochondria and cells leak electrons into the network of connective tissues, thus rendering connective tissues a function of an ROS-related electric channel. The new fate of mitochondrial electrons that we reveal and the role of connective tissues as a ROS/superoxide electric channel will not only upend the current understanding about reactive oxygen species, but also radically challenge molecular interaction-based concepts of signal transduction and metabolism regulation, demonstrating a promising clue to an electric approach to understanding biology.

Why is it important?

We traveled a profound distance, theoretically speaking, to elucidate the mechanism of ROS-fluorescent distribution in mice, rats and monkeys and its biological significance, defining the importance of mitochondrial-leaked electrons and redefining the role of connective tissues. These observations, we believe, will result in transformational progress in the many studies of biology.
