        • Benefits for COST and for the COST Action MitoEAGLE
Thinking about our potential involvement, I would propose following:
WG3 - we can easily squeeze here with comparison of Oroboros and Seahorse, which we try to do anyway in order to establish the value of Seahorse. Here, we can join N. Larssons group, if it joins mtEAGLE (did not find them here yet).
WG3/WG1 – Measurement of lymphocytes and using lymphocytes for cross-laboratory validation –as we now have quite extensive experience with lymphoid cells, we can participate in protocol development and so on. We are also happy to host some visiting researchers and teach them our expertise.
WG1 – we have just about started screening of mito phenotypes in rat RI strains (SHRxBN). In the end, data will be available in database, but most likely as some ratios of various respiratory states to make them usable for QTL mapping. We can deposit original data into mitoEAGLE database as well. It will be more genotype x phenotype study than age, gender etc. x phenotype and it would include rats, which would require broadening the mitoEAGLE scope to laboratory rodents in general and not to keep it focussed on mice only.
If there would be any chance to utilise “Short-Term Scientific Missions” to send young team members to other participating labs and learn some new techniques (just looking at the participant list, e.g. fluorescent measuring of ATP in the lab of C. Chinopoulos springs into mind), it would be great added value of this COST project for us. And of course, we are also happy to host others in our lab, as I proposed with lymphocyte programme (and it does not have to be limited to it).
