Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase F, mitochondrial precursor
Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase F, mitochondrial precursor or PPIF is protein involved in reactive oxygen species stress response (ROS stress response).
ME/CFS[edit | edit source]
A small study by Sweetman et al. (2020) found that PPIF expression was decreased in patients with ME/CFS compared to healthy controls.

mitochondria Important parts of the biological cell, with each mitochondrion encased within a mitochondrial membrane. Mitochondria are best known for their role in energy production, earning them the nickname "the powerhouse of the cell". Mitochondria also participate in the detection of threats and the response to these threats. One of the responses to threats orchestrated by mitochondria is apoptosis, a cell suicide program used by cells when the threat can not be eliminated.
