Sommer AP. Mitochondrial solar sensitivity: evolutionary and biomedical implications. Ann Transl Med. 2020 Mar;8(5):161. doi: 10.21037/atm.2019.11.100. PMID: 32310246; PMCID: PMC7154450. Depending on cellular demand or oxidative stress, mitochondria produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) or reactive oxygen species (ROS), thereby controlling the entire scale of cellular energy supply or disease, respectively. While deficiency in ROS can compromise...

J Mol Endocrinol. 2018 Apr; 60(3): R115–R130.Published online 2018 Jan 29. doi: 10.1530/JME-17-0196 Abstract Many physiological processes are regulated with a 24-h periodicity to anticipate the environmental changes of daytime to nighttime and vice versa. These 24-h regulations, commonly termed circadian rhythms, among others control the sleep–wake cycle, locomotor activity and preparation for food availability during the...
