NCATS BioPlanet: A Resource for Discovery

Researchers can better study how compounds and drugs affect cells with an NCATS resource that combines all known pathways in human cells into one database. BioPlanet lets users browse, retrieve and analyze the pathways and explore pathway connections.

Three chemicals (FCCP, chlorfenapyr and pinacyanol) damage the cell’s mitochondria, leading to the damaged mitochondria being recycled.
NCATS Scientists Prioritize Compounds to Advance Research on Mitochondrial Damage

NCATS scientists collaborated with other federal agencies to develop an approach that enables researchers to prioritize environmental chemicals for their ability to disrupt mitochondria, the power generators of the cell.
