Rat liver mitochondria are much more susceptible to protein oxidation induced by paraquat than plant mitochondria. The unsaturated index and the peroxidizability index are higher in rat than in potato tuber. The levels of superoxide dismutase and glutathione reductase are concurrent with the different sensitivities to paraquat, with higher activities in(More)
Ca(2+)-sensitive electrode as a practical approach is used to follow Ca(2+) changes in the medium and particularly useful to study mitochondrial Ca(2+) uptake (or release); this method permits the continuous recording of Ca(2+) movements through the mitochondrial inner membrane. In this chapter, it is described how to prepare a Ca(2+)-sensitive electrode,(More)
