The mitochondrial generation of hydrogen peroxide. General properties and effect of hyperbaric oxygen.
1. Pigeon heart mitochondria produce H(2)O(2) at a maximal rate of about 20nmol/min per mg of protein. 2. Succinate-glutamate and malate-glutamate are substrates which are able to support maximalExpand
