This chapter describes a luciferase-based protocol to measure adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production in isolated mitochondria of Trypanosoma brucei. The assay represents an excellent method to characterize the functionality of isolated mitochondria. Comparing the ATP production induced by substrates for oxidative phosphorylation to the one induced by(More)
The protozoan Trypanosoma brucei has a single mitochondrion and lacks an apoptotic machinery. Here we show that expression of the proapoptotic protein Bax in T. brucei causes the release of cytochrome c, the depolarization of the mitochondrial membrane potential and mitochondrial fission. However, in contrast to mammalian cells, the three events are(More)
