Mitochondria play a pivotal role in converting nutrients into ATP, utilizing diverse pathways to meet cellular energy demands. Fatty acid oxidation (FAO) is essential for the maintenance of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Despite its importance, the precise mechanisms by which mitochondrial metabolism influences HSC fate remain unclear. The Ito Lab is dedicated to elucidating the regulatory pathways governing the balance between healthy and malignant HSCs. This presentation provides an overview of our research efforts, outlining our advancements in understanding how mitochondria impact HSC fate determination and showcasing significant technical progress. We envision that a deeper understanding of metabolic regulation will enhance HSC transplantation methodologies and present new therapeutic approaches for HSC-related disorders.
