One of the most characteristic features of spontaneously originating biological systems is that their most fundamental structure and especially functioning is based on molecular-level organization. This property is particularly important when natural living individuals composed of organic compounds of carbon are compared with (hypothetical) artificial(More)
The protonmotive force across the inner mitochondrial membrane (Deltap) has two components: membrane potential (DeltaPsi) and the gradient of proton concentration (DeltapH). The computer model of oxidative phosphorylation developed previously by Korzeniewski et al. (Korzeniewski, B., Noma, A., and Matsuoka, S. (2005) Biophys. Chem. 116, 145-157) was(More)
Inside the eukaryotic cell, mitochondria are internal organelles of prokaryotic origin, responsible for energy supply in the cell. The control of the mitochondrial ATP production is a complex problem with different patterns according to different tissues and organs. Our aim is to continue to develop the modelling of oxidative phosphorylation in different(More)
MCA (metabolic control analysis) was originally developed to deal with steady-state systems. In the present theoretical study, the control analysis is applied to the cyclic quasi-steady-state system of ion transport in cardiac myocytes. It is demonstrated that the metabolic control of particular components (channels, exchangers, pumps) of the system over(More)
In this study we have examined the effect of prolonged endurance training program on the pulmonary oxygen uptake (V'O2) kinetics during heavy-intensity cycling-exercise and its impact on maximal cycling and running performance. Twelve healthy, physically active men (mean±SD: age 22.33±1.44 years, V'O2peak 3198±458 mL ∙ min-1) performed an endurance training(More)
A computer model of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) in skeletal muscle is used to compare state 3, intermediate state and state 4 in mitochondria with rest and work in skeletal muscle. 'Idealized' state 4 and 3 in relation to various 'experimental' states 4 and 3 are defined. Theoretical simulations show, in accordance with experimental data, that oxygen(More)
It has been postulated previously that a direct activation of all oxidative phosphorylation complexes in parallel with the activation of ATP usage and substrate dehydrogenation (the so-called each-step activation) is the main mechanism responsible for adjusting the rate of ATP production by mitochondria to the current energy demand during rest-to-work(More)
The present article briefly summarizes the theoretical studies made by the authors and co-workers on the effect of inborn enzyme deficiencies on oxidative phosphorylation in intact tissues and on the genesis of mitochondrial diseases. The dynamic computer model of oxidative phosphorylation developed previously allowed to extrapolate experimental data(More)
