Subgroup W: Organelle Interactome and Cell Plasticity Control

Monday, December 10, 4:30 pm-7:05 pm
Room 30C

Organizers:  Yeguang Chen, Tsinghua University, Beijing, CHINA; Xuebiao Yao, University of Science & Technology of China, Hefei, CHINA

The organization of the eukaryotic cell into discrete membrane-bound organelles allows for the separation of incompatible biochemical processes and dynamic interactions of these organelles orchestrate context-dependent cell physiology. The basic cell biology of how organelles communicate is central to understanding metazoan development, the tissue homeostasis, and the cell plasticity control. However, despite our knowledge of the composition of organelle, the spatio- temporal organization of organelles within the cell and their context-dependent interactions remain poorly characterized. Recent advancements in multiplex organelle imaging, emerging dynamics of membraneless organelle combined with model organoids from normal and diseased tissues enable us to delineate organelle dynamics underlying cell plasticity control. This session provides a unique forum to feature speakers from ASCBCSCBEMBO to feature works addressing how organelle communications regulate cell plasticity during homeostasis and cell fate decision as well as how host-microbe interactions regulate cell physiology in organoids.
