    The interactions of Co2+ with mitochondria have been investigated. The results indicate that Co2+ inhibits ATP synthesis. Further investigations into ATP synthesis mechanisms indicated that inhibition is due to the opening of a transmembrane pore. The opening of this pore causes the collapse of...

    The ADP/ATP carrier (AAC) is a major representative of mitochondrial preproteins lacking an N-terminal presequence. AAC contains targeting information in each of its three modules, which has led to a search for the dominant targeting region. An alternative, not yet tested model would be that...

    Apoptosis is executed by caspases, which undergo proteolytic activation in response to cell death stimuli. The apoptotic protease-activating factor 1 (Apaf-1) controls caspase activation downstream of mitochondria. During apoptosis, Apaf-1 binds to cytochrome c and in the presence of ATP/dATP...

    AIM: To characterize the mitochondrial dysfunction in experimental cirrhosis and to study whether insulin-like growth factor-I(IGF-I) therapy (4 wk) is able to induce beneficial effects on damaged mitochondria leading to cellular protection. METHODS: Wistar rats were divided into three groups:...

    Earlier work on the protein import system of yeast mitochondria has identified two soluble 70 kDa protein complexes in the intermembrane space. One complex contains the essential proteins Tim9p and Tim10p and mediates transport of cytosolically-made metabolite carrier proteins from the outer to...

    The article presents a study that explored the role of uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2) and ADP-ATP antiporter in kidney mitochondria. The study revealed that the uncoupling of respiration, decrease in the membrane potential and slow suppression of the substrate oxidation are the result of the...
