PELLEGRINI LAB

The Mitochondria Research Group @ Laval University, in Quebec City, Canada

We are cell biologists who want to understand how inter-organelle contacts regulate lipid biology.

We discovered the wrappER, a wrapping-type of rough-ER that wraps around most of the mitochondria and peroxisomes of the hepatocyte, the main cell of the liver.

 

Read our key published WrappER papers:

Anastasia et al. Cell Reports 2021

 

Ilacqua et al. J. Cell Science 2021

 

We focus on discovering molecular mechanisms that organize the biogenesis and remodelling of the wrappER during metabolic shifts.

Our work is typically published in major scientific journals and presented at major international meetings:
