Cardiomyocytes in which Bnip3 is overexpressed are able to eliminate damaged mitochondria through autophagy via a Parkin-dependent mechanism, indicating that Parkin-mediated mitochondrial autophagy exists in cardiomyocytes. 125 Parkin knockout mice exhibit normal cardiac function at baseline, but their cardiomyocytes exhibit morphologically disorganized mitochondria with or without mitochondrial dysfunction. 137,138 Interestingly, clearance of mitochondria by autophagy seems to be maintained.
