Abstract

The strategic importance for cellular organelles of being in contact with each other, exchanging messenger molecules, is nowadays well established. Different inter-organelle cross-talk pathways finely regulate multiple physiological cellular mechanisms, and their dysregulation has been found to underlie different pathological conditions. In the last years, a great effort has been made to study such organelle interactions, to understand their functional roles within the cell and the molecules involved in their formation and/or modulation. In this contribution, some examples of organelle cross-talk and their contributions in regulating physiological processes are presented. Moreover, the pro and cons of the available methods for a proper, reliable investigation of membrane contact sites are described.
