Mitophagy in ototoxicity

Front Cell Neurosci. 2023 Feb 23;17:1140916. doi: 10.3389/fncel.2023.1140916. eCollection 2023.


Mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with ototoxicity, which is caused by external factors. Mitophagy plays a key role in maintaining mitochondrial homeostasis and function and is regulated by a series of key mitophagy regulatory proteins and signaling pathways. The results of ototoxicity models indicate the importance of this process in the etiology of ototoxicity. A number of recent investigations of the control of cell fate by mitophagy have enhanced our understanding of the mechanisms by which mitophagy regulates ototoxicity and other hearing-related diseases, providing opportunities for targeting mitochondria to treat ototoxicity.

Keywords: PINK1-Parkin; autophagy receptors; mitochondria; mitophagy; ototoxicity.
