Exchange of information between the nucleus and cytosol depends on the metabolic state of the cell, yet the energy-supply pathways to the nuclear compartment are unknown. Here, the energetics of nucleocytoplasmic communication was determined by imaging import of a constitutive nuclear protein histone H1. Translocation of H1 through nuclear pores in cardiac(More)
Modulation of mitochondrial respiratory chain, dehydrogenase, and nucleotide-metabolizing enzyme activities is fundamental to cellular protection. Here, we demonstrate that the potassium channel opener diazoxide, within its cardioprotective concentration range, modulated the activity of flavin adenine dinucleotide-dependent succinate dehydrogenase with an(More)
Fluorescent dyes are widely used to monitor changes in mitochondrial transmembrane potential (DeltaPsim). When MitoTracker Red CMXRos, tetramethylrhodamine methyl ester (TMRM), and 3,3'dihexyloxacarbocyanine iodide (DiOC6(3)) were utilized to examine the effects of the experimental anticancer drug adaphostin on intact cells or isolated mitochondria,(More)
The review outlines our current understanding of the role of porins, the proteins forming voltage-dependent anion channels (VDAC), in regulation of permeability of the outer mitochondrial membrane. Recent data on the porin structure, amino acid sequence, and isoforms are discussed. The existence of three different VDAC isoforms in mammalian cells suggests(More)
The effect of the organophosphorus insecticide O-ethyl-S-propyl-2,4-dichlorophenylphosphorothioate (ethaphos) on mitochondrial functions was studied. It was shown that ethaphos interacts with mitchondrial oxidative metabolism and inhibits oxidation of succinate, alpha-glycerophosphate and pyruvate+malate at concentrations of 100, 75 and 50 micrograms mg-1(More)
The present work is an overview of the factors regulating permeability of the outer membrane of mitochondria and the state of the channels formed by porin (voltage-dependent anion channels, VDAC). According to the accumulated data, modulation of the outer membrane permeability can be induced by endogenous phosphorylation of VDAC channels. Different protein(More)
