"Measurement of Mitochondrial Electron Transfer Complex Activity by Cell Imaging"

Welcome to Ohta Lab!
Ohta Lab is a laboratory in Department of Biotechnology and Life Science,
Graduate School of Engineering in Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology.


Mitochondria are one of the intracellular organelles that play a central role in intracellular energy production, generation of reactive oxygen species, and cell death. We hope to contribute to human health by investigating and regulating its mechanism.
