Since mitochondria is the major power house in eukaryotic cells and unhealthy mitochondria would cause several severe diseases including neurodegeneration, cardiovascular disorders and some cancers, mitochondrial health maintenance can be considered as one of the most important mechanism we need to study. In this review we discussed current progress we know so far, and we focused on the detail of proteolytic aspect of the study which we call it mitochondrial protein quality control (MQC) and its relationship with ageing and mitochondria-related diseases in order to emphasize the future direction for the study and studies related to mitochondrial health.
